Description

Mas de Daumas Gassac Vin de Laurence is an unconventional wine made from two leading lights: Sercial, a mysterious grape from the island of Madeira that develops intriguing aromas of acidity and bitterness, and Languedoc’s very own star, the Muscat petit grain from Mireval. The result of this Franco-Portuguese alchemy is a fleshy, rich amber colored wine, incredibly complex, where the Muscat’s sweetness merges with the Sercial’s acidity, to tease and delight your palate. It ends with the candied characteristics of the over-ripe grapes predominant.

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.
