Mas de Daumas Gassac Languedoc Rouge 2014

Member Review by hwikyung:

Medium ruby in color, with a hint of blood red at the rim of the glass, this wine has a complicated nose of leather, cherries, sandalwood, loam, and just the barest floral notes hanging above it all. In the mouth it is beautifully balanced and silky on the tongue with primary flavors of cherries, damp earth, and crushed stones, and secondary flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg mixed with plums. The wine has subtle, complex tannins (which were frankly softer than I would have expected given all the hype about this being a "massive wine" ) and the finish is fairly long and satisfying. Over the course of 30 hours, this wine developed more plum flavors, which was a nice surprise.

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.

Still at the top of the Languedoc tree, this is made from a rich palette of varieties, skilfully blended in this exceptional vintage. The result is worthy of its famous "First Growth of the Languedoc" soubriquet. Ready, but will improve, Red, Medium-Full Bodied, Dry, 13% alcohol.
