Masculine and rustic Australian-style Cabernet-Shiraz blend that can be drunk now or cellared for a couple of years.
Grape Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah/Shiraz
Style: Rich, fruity
Drink By: 2015
Very deep ruby hue, with an earthy, expressive nose of blackcurrants, leather and coffee. Built to last, with hefty tannins and clean, fresh acidity. Weighty, savoury and structured style that ideally needs food to show its fine breeding.
Enjoy with Cantonese-style roast duck or leg of lamb in lavender and garlic.
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.
Lar Veale, Sunday Tribune, April 2010: "From the producers of the Grand Cru of the Languedoc, “Mas de Daumas Gassac” where the estate is organically farmed and grapes handpicked. A blend of Cabernet, Mourvèdre and Syrah, and full of bright red berries and soft silky tannins with just a pinch of spice. Gorgeous gumption in a glass. Perfect with lamb."
