Mas de Daumas Gassac Blanc 2011
If you particularly enjoy fruity aromas and fresh wine, drink it within one and three years. If you enjoy the subtle taste of good white dry sherry, then lay down your Daumas Gassac whites for at least five years - even ten! The mysterious tertiary characteristics are quite amazing.
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.
