Even though they do say so themselves, Mas de Daumas Gassac is arguably a 'Grand Cru of the Languedoc'. One of the first truly superior modern wines from the region, it helped establish this part of France as a potential source of serious, ageworthy reds. It's Bordeaux-inspired, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, but with a bewildering variety of other varieties blended in. Can be cellared for at least ten years from release.
Cabernet Sauvignon, plus 22 other varieties. 40 year old vines on average. Long fermentation in stainless steel tanks. 12-15 months ageing in oak. Unfiltered.
