Moulin de Gassac Merlot 2011

Languedoc-Roussillon, France

Buy Now:


Round and harmonious, this 100% Merlot shows all the appealing traits that makes this grape so brilliant. Bright aromas of red berries and sweet spice, with a juicy, fruity wash of plum, beetroot and mint. Great value, and a perfect midweek treat.

Drink on its own or with pizza, pork chops, spare ribs or premium sausage. 

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.
