Mas de Daumas Gassac Vin de Pays de l'Hérault Blanc 2009
20% Viognier, 20% Chardonnay, 20% Petit Manseng, 20% Chenin Blanc and 20% rare grape varieties from all over the world. 25-30 years old vines. Alcohol 13%. Wine Advocate on the 2008 vintage: Delicate aromas of pears, acacia honey, kaki and ripe apples. Medium to high acidity and a medium body. Good intensity of pure apple and pear flavours plus a touch of spice. Long finish.
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.
