Sales Information

Daumas Gassac wines owe their very being to Professor Emile Peynaud! So it’s only right that their greatest wine should be named in his honour! It’s a tribute to the man who taught us everything, the man who unveiled the art of creating a wine in the image of the great terroir that is the Gassac Valley.

Always serve your Daumas Gassac between 18° and 19°C, preferably in a large balloon glass.

Make sure to open your bottle three to four hours beforehand.

Better still, decant the wine which will help bring out its complexity. But, do replace the stopper.

Drink young (within 3 years) to enjoy the full fruity aromas. Otherwise drink it after 5 years, or lay it down for 15-20 long years to get the full benefit of a great ‘vin de garde’.

The Vineyard

The ‘grands crus’ Mas de Daumas Gassac wines hail exclusively from the magical terroirs of the Gassac valley. The 50 hectares of vines flourish in half to one hectare sized glades, all surrounded by over 1500 hectares of the magnificent wild, Aniane garrigue forest.

The land – made up of glacial dust and Lutetian era limestone - is truly unique : its life has never been threatened by modern chemical fertilizers, over 30 uncloned grape varieties have been planted by the Guibert family since 1971. Yields are naturally low (on average 37 hectolitres per hectare).

Critics

extract from Jancis Robinson article June 2010

"Indeed just about the only varieties that do not thrive there are Riesling and the ubiquitous Cabernet Sauvignon. The pioneering Mas de Daumas Gassac’s special all-Cabernet 2007 Cuvée Emile Peynaud, named after their original Bordeaux consultant, is, however, a fine wine by any measure – as well it might be at nearly £100 a bottle, truly the exception that proves the rule about the modest prices for some top-quality wines from this extensive stretch of southern France."
