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.
Light attack, well balanced. Deep red color. Dies on finish.
Soft with dark cherry fruit with hints of blueberries on the finish. Acidity is well balanced against the fruit and soft tannins. It's a very drinkable wine at this stage in the game.
