The week in pictures

Domaine Gayda hosted a tasting at 67 Pall Mall this week, showcasing the results of a maturation experiment it has been conducting. Nine Syrahs, sourced from the same vintage (2018) and vineyard, have been aged in nine different vessels including a terracotta egg, one-year-old French barrel and a sandstone jar. Attendees were then invited to taste all the samples and guess which wine had been aged in which vessel. Head winemaker Vincent Chansault said he was impressed by the performance of the barrels, but noted that there wasn’t one particular vessel which stood-out. “There were elements I liked from each,” he said.

The producer hopes to repeat the tasting at a later date in order to see whether any changes can be observed.
