Moulin de Gassac 'Guilhem' Rouge 2012

Languedoc-Roussillon, France

Buy Now:

€12.49

Quite a rustic offering, with a real 'goût de terroir' (taste of the soil), this distinctive Syrah-blend has a fragrant, earthy nose of black fruit and herbs, and a fresh, moderately-tannic palate of baked blackberry pie, nutmeg and cedar.

Drink with charcuterie, strong cheeses or lamb cutlets and root vegetables.

Variously described as “Lafite in the Languedoc” (Gault & Millau), “the only Grand Cru of the Midi” (Hugh Johnson) and “exceptional” (Robert Parker), Mas de Daumas Gassac has consistently been the Languedoc gold standard for the past four decades. The 80-hectare, organically-farmed estate is located deep in the sultry Midi, but enjoys a temperate microclimate as a result of altitude, which gives the wines a lovely deftness of touch. 

Pays d'Hérault is a productive IGP (Indication Géographique Protégée) in Languedoc-Roussillon that focuses on mostly red wine. The area also grows grapes - both local and imported from other regions - for appellation-level wines like Minervois and Faugeres.
