  • Mas de Daumas Gassac Blanc 2021


    “These wines from Mas de Daumas Gassac and the Guibert family were among the clear highlights of my tastings from this report. The Blanc, a blend of mostly Viognier, Chardonnay and Petit Manseng is incredibly distinctive. It also needs quite a bit of air to show at its best. The Rouge is a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend that includes dollops of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and other grapes done in a traditional Bordeaux style with several weeks on the skins and 12-15 months in mostly neutral oak. It, too, boasts a spectacular track record. Even with several decades in bottle, the Rouge retains terrific acidity and plenty of tannic verve. The very top wine is the 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Cuvée Émile Peynaud, which is named in honor of the renowned Bordeaux professor who looked after the estate in its early days. I can’t recommend these wines highly enough.”
