May competition: Love the Languedoc
More From: Curious Competitions
Posted May 2nd, 2012 by Curious Wines
It’s “Love the Languedoc” for the months of May and June and we’ve one of our tastiest prizes ever up for grabs in our May competition.
Described by Gault & Millau as “a Lafite in the Languedoc”, “the only Grand Cru of the Midi” by Hugh Johnson and “Exceptional” by Robert Parker, Mas de Daumas Gassac have been the benchmark for Languedoc wines for over 30 years. Their flagship Mas de Daumas Gassac Grand Cru was declared “one of the top 10 wines in the world” by Michael Broadbent.
With the new vintages – 2010 in the red and 2011 in the white – landing this week, we’ve a bottle of each to give away as part of a “Love the Languedoc” prize pack that also includes Mondovino, the 2004 Cannes Film Festival awardee documenting the family succession struggles of wine dynasties across three continents, and featuring none other than Aimé Guibert, founder and patriarch of Mas de Daumas Gassac. (Aimé’s the gentleman declaring “wine is dead!” in the trailer below.)
Finally, a copy of Rupert Wright’s Notes from the Languedoc, “all you ever wanted to know about the Languedoc, a cultural, historical and contemporary tour de force” according to the Daily Mail, completes a box of goodies that will have you salivating at every sip, frame and page-turn.
To win the Love the Languedoc prize pack, you must be subscribed to the Curious Wines newsletter. We’ll be including a not-so-difficult question and instructions on how to enter in our May newsletter going out soon.
