One of France’s most iconic and controversial vignerons, Aimé Guibert founded Mas de Daumas Gassac with his wife Véronique in the heart of the Hérault in the 1974. Often referred to as the ‘Grand Cru of the Midi’, Mas de Daumas Gassac became a cult wine from its first vintage in 1978.
Described by some as the original fine wine of the Languedoc, Mas de Daumas Gassac Rouge is equal parts charming and brooding. Dominated by cabernet sauvignon, the wine shows classic cassis and bramble flavours, with a lovely depth and richness to the black fruit. It is in the supreme elegance and restraint as the flavours unfold that the extraordinary terroir is revealed. Fine tannins create a framework for the velvety fruit, while hints of garrigue, mocha and liquorice linger on the finish.
