Mas de Daumas Gassac Vin de Pays de l'Herault Reserve de Gassac 2005

External Review by Shop Wine Direct:

Wine Tasting NotesThe flagship wine from this fine estate. This is a fabulous vintage where Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and all of the other cepages came in perfectly ripe. The nose is of dark berries, cocao, tobacco and some mineral components. This is followed in the mouth by an incredibly wide, perfectly focused display of red fruit, ripe dusty tannins and garrigue notes. This wine drinks remarkably well now, but will age gracefully for two decades. Perfect harmony and balance, with plenty of juice and stuffing.

Mas de Daumas Gassac:
Way back in 780 CE, Charlemagne’s advisor, Saint Benedict of Aniane, founded the first vineyard in the Gassac valley. Indeed, there are good reasons to believe that he introduced Charlemagne to some of the valley’s early wines. Thus, in common with most truly great wines, the Daumas Gassac Grands Crus were born under the aegis of a prestigious Abbey.
