Description

Mas De Daumas Gassac are a pioneering producer of the Languedoc, being one of the first to recognise its potential and fully invest in the land. They have gained an international status and make world class wines. Their wines are exquisite, sublimely subtle and unique for a variety of reasons. Firstly, the terroir is exceptional, the vines growing on a deep, well-drained soil formed by glacial deposits. Secondly, the upper Gassac valley has a cool microclimate that allows a longer growing season. Thirdly, the vineyards have been created in small plots or clearings surrounded by forest and garrigue. The wines consequently soak up the fragrances of the surrounding plant life of laurel, thyme, rosemary, lavender, arbutus, fennel, wild mint and lentisque. Fourthly, Daumas Gassac embraces an organic culture, eschewing chemical fertilizers, using only natural dung compost as well as tree and straw cuttings. Fifthly, yields are naturally low (35hl/ha), allowing the wine to express the terroir more than the grape variety & the vines are manually harvested.
