'Dark berries, leather, pencil lead, roasted meat, dried herbs, bell peppers, cumin, bay leaves and some stones. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins and crisp acidity yet it has more intensity to deliver on the mid-palate.
It’s poised with a restrained power. Harmonious and agile with great balance and vitality. Long, crunchy and developing finish. 84% cabernet sauvignon, 5% pinot noir, 2% merlot, 2% petit verdot, 2% cabernet franc, 2% tannat and 3% rare varieties. Try after 2026.'

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!
