Mas de Daumas Gassac Blanc 2022


In Stock

“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.”
