A Grenache Blanc straw-yellow colour blend, with a delicate, pretty nose of acacia and pear and a mid-weight, harmonious palate of lemon, dill and green olive.
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.
Try with cheese soufflé and fresh, crusty French bread.
