Mas de Daumas Gassac – Rouge 2019 is a stunning dry red wine from the Languedoc. It is comfortably considered a very fine French wine, that is sometimes know as ‘The Lafite of the Languedoc’.
This fine red wine has the added bonus of being bottled in a Magnum bottle – that allows for better ageing, as well as looking stunning when it is poured.
Predominantly un-cloned king Cabernet Sauvignon which reigned supreme in the Medoc before 1914, with up to 18+ other grapes. This vintage is majestic, with immensely complex fruit & great body. A timeless vintage, drink it while young to relish its elegant fruitiness. Alternatively, put it down, knowing that in 7 or 15 years this wine will be truly superb. Serve in a large Balloon glass and open 3 to 4 hours before serving with cork or decant, with stopper.
Dark red in colour, it has complex notes of tart red fruit and black plum with a touch of leather. This wine is mouthfilling with powerful tannins and a ripe fruit finish. It has excellent acidity.
Serves at: 17-18°C
Food matches: Perfect with complex dishes, red meat, game (particularly venison and wild boar) and cheeses.
