The 2009 vintage of Mas de Daumas Gassac is on a par with the great vintages of 1978, 1988 and 2000. Heady, black fruits on the nose with aromas of damson and violets and hints of liquorice. Opulent, mouthfilling, incredibly rich but soft tannins. Superbly concentrated, this is a truly outstanding vintage that will develop beautifully over the next ten years

Mas de Daumas Gassac was established in the 1970s when Aimé Guibert,a Parisian glove manufacturer purchased the property, and since then has come to be described by some as the Grand Cru of Languedoc.

The Guibert mantra is that uniformity is the enemy of quality. They tracked down some vines propagated from cuttings taken in some of the great Bordeaux properties during the 1930s & 1940s. And, as in the best Medoc chateaux, their choice was based on quality and diversity rather than on yield and disease resistance.

Once Gault et Millau labelled the estate as the Languedoc Chateau Lafite; sales of the red wine exploded. Today three of Aimé's sons, Samuel, Roman and Gaël work in the business.

Why don’t you treat yourself to a bottle or more? (Would make a wonderful gift…and Evines will pay the postage when you purchase any 6 bottles)
