Expert Rating

James Suckling - 94 Points

'An aromatic nose with white peaches, apricots, fresh thyme, rosemary, stones, dried mango and mild spices. It’s medium-bodied with such good volume on the palate. Harmonious with velvety texture. Creamy but fresh. Absolutely delightful. 48% viognier, 13% chardonnay, 13% manseng, 9% chenin and 17% rare varieties. Drink or hold.'

Tasting notes:Quite a different wine from the third or fourth year! Its youthful fruitiness will have disappeared, to be replaced by new flavours reminiscent of "sherry" or old "Sauternes", a touch "oxidative" with great finesse.

About the Winery

The historic Mas de Daumas Gassac was founded in 1974 by Aimé & Véronique Guibert. While the couple were keen on planting crops, they weren’t certain which crops would thrive until a soil scientist from the University of Bordeaux tested the glacial limestone soils (akin to those in the Cote d’Or) and convinced them to plant grapes. Today, winemaker Samuel Guibert and his four brothers each manage different aspects of the family business.

The valley, which benefits from the nearby sea and mountains, is dotted with a patchwork of small, forest-enclosed parcels that span over 40 different grape varieties. This rare and diverse assortment, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, make up the unique Gassac blends, often referred to as the Grand Crus of the Midi (South of France).

Organic farming, slow and cool wild yeast fermentations, low sulfur additions, and 12-15 months of barrel aging, are all intentional steps in producing red and white wines that have a vibrancy and approachability in their youth but can more than stand the test of time. In fact, they are well worth the wait!
