Medium bodied with a healthy cherry colour, jaunty nose and sleek, sweet-fruited palate of raspberry jam, plum pie, strawberry and baking spices. A lovely drop!
Chill lightly and drink without food, or with cured meats, picnics or salmon/tuna.
Made from 100% Languedoc Pinot Noir fermented at cool temperatures to retain all the succulent berry fruit flavours. Aged for 6 months in stainless steel before bottling. Pinot Noir is the grape behind red Burgundy.
Variously described as “Lafite in the Languedoc,” “the only Grand Cru of the Midi,” and “exceptional,” Mas de Daumas Gassac has consistently been the Languedoc gold standard for the past four decades. The 80-hectare, organically-farmed estate is located deep in the sultry Midi, but enjoys a temperate microclimate as a result of altitude, which gives the wines a lovely deftness of touch.
