Mas de Daumas Gassac Vin de Pays de l'Herault Rouge 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Rhone Report: An outstanding white that has both richness and freshness, the 2011 Mas de Daumas Gassac Vin de Pays de l'Hérault Blanc is a blend of equal parts Chardonnay, Viognier, Petit Manseng, and Chenin Blanc that spent 6 months in stainless steel. Offering up an exotic array of lychee, mineral, spice, and baked apples, it has beautiful depth and richness on the palate to go with perfectly integrated acidity, excellent concentration, and a clean, refreshing finish. On the fuller side of medium-bodied, it is a knockout white that should drink nicely for 2-4 years. (Mar 2013)

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.
