Mas de Daumas Gassac Red
1972 was a year that transformed the lives of Véronique and Aimé Guibert. They had discovered a unique terroir in the Gassac valley, in Aniane, in the Cevennes foothills of the Larzac plateau, in the heart of the Languedoc. It was to change their lives and be at the origin of a great Languedoc wine making adventure, that of the Mas de Daumas Gassac. Mas de Daumas Gassac Red 2012, celebrate 40 years of a Domaine which has been well known for many years as the ‘Grand Cru of the Midi’. The vines are predominantly uncloned king Cabernet Sauvignon which reigned supreme in the Medoc before 1914.
This 2012 is thoroughly enjoyable and seductive. Aromas simply explode, red berries, over-ripe autumnal figs, elegant vinosity lifted by rich tannins and fine savours of chocolate and truffle.
Ideal to accompany game, steak and other hearty dishes.
