" Daumas Gassac brought new ideas to the Languedoc by farming organically, using low-yielding old clone vines and planting a multitude of grape varieties to build complexity in their wines. The French magazine Gault-Milau called Daumas Gassac "Lafite Rothchild of the Languedoc-Roussillon" while the London Times argued that it tasted like a "Latour"; Hugh Johnson called it "the only Grand Cru of the Midi", Michael Broadbent wrote "One of the ten best wines in the world" and Robert Parker, Jr. claimed it to be "Exceptional" and "One of the most remarkable non-appellation wines of France." The Wine Spectator's 1994 article on this region concluded, "Only four wines rated outstanding, and they are all from the same producer - Mas de Daumas Gassac, the undisputed star of the Languedoc-Roussillon."
