Food Pairings for Mas de Daumas Gassac White Blend Vin de Pays de l'Hérault Blanc
The white from Daumas Gassac has long been a favourite of mine, in its own way<br/>just as influential as the red; indeed in the selection of grape varieties,<br/>namely equal shares of Viognier, Petit Manseng, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc, it<br/>has probably been more influential. It is great to see white wines of this<br/>stature,and those from near-by Châteauneuf-du-Pape, now being assessed in<br/>the same way as the top Chardonnays from Burgundy. Complexity is most<br/>impressive here, with ripeness, effortlessly achieved in this, near-perfect<br/>summer, manifested by notes of acacia, white peach and guava, and freshness<br/>evidenced by the stony minerality and crisp acidity which subtly underwrite the<br/>whole structure. A twist of nutty Mediterranean indulgence completes the<br/>picture, which is eminently food-friendly, but certainly worthy of trying on<br/>its own such is its fundamental quality. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
