Description

Produced from old non-cloned vines and low yields, Mas de Daumas Gassac Blanc stand up to ageing as do no others. To be drunk young (in the first 18 months) to appreciate its magnificent minerality and very complex fruit aromas. Alternatively, to be kept at least from 4 to 12 years to discover a very rich wine with notes of honey and crystallized fruits.

With the vineyard’s history dating all the way back to 780 AD, Mas de Daumas Gassac is a superstar producer. In 1971, The Daumas family bought an abandoned “Mas” (farmhouse) and mill located in the heart of a beautiful wild valley through which flowed the Gassac river, and planted vines in clearings in the middle of 4,000 hectares of forest. The first vintage of their flagship Red was produced in 1978 from roughly 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, grown from an exceptional terroir. Today, the children of the family manage the estate, storing their harvests in an old cellar underneath the original mill. Famously described as the ‘First Growth of the Languedoc’, Mas de Daumas Gassac remains a truly unique producer in the region.
