Languedoc & SW France, France

Buy Now:

Considered by wine experts as "The Grand Cru of the Midi (South of France)" (Hugh Johnson), "A Latife in Languedoc" (Gault & Millau), "One of the 10 best wines in the world" (Michael Broadbent), or simply "Exceptional" (Robert Parker).
In 1971, the Guibert family bought an old farm called Mas de Daumas Gassac, 30 mins drive north of the Mediterranean. It was the discovery of red glacial soils that led to the planting of what would become the Grand Cru vineyards of the Languedoc. The estate now includes 52 separate vineyard plots, each surrounded by dense garrigue and forest. The vines are farmed with respect to preserve the natural environment and the grapes are hand harvested.
This estate blend of red grapes - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and up to 20 other rare varietals - is aged for 18 months in small oak casks. Once bottled, the wine's flavours are robust and intense, especially for the first 5-7 years from vintage. After that its complexity and depth intensify for up to 25 years, if you can resist. Be sure to decant for heightened enjoyment. Great finesse and complexity. Lay down for ten or more years from vintage, or drink now.


Irish Examiner

*Best Value, premium*

"[Has] always drunk well in youth with pronounced but understated black fruits to the fore but do decant for an hour to tone down the tannins. With age the wine takes on a more baked cherry, leather and tobacco character."

Decanter Magazine

Steven Spurrier

"An elegant concentration produced from 75% Cabernet Sauvignon planted in 1973 blended with 15 other grapes. Midi warmth softens the Cabernet austerity to give vigorous individuality. A brilliant wine." (on the 2011 vintage)
