Description
 
Famously described as the ‘First Growth of the Languedoc’, Mas De Daumas Gassac remains unique in the region. The world-famous red is an intriguing blend of Cabernet Sauvignon along with a mix of indigenous and more unusual varieties from the south of France, such as Grenache, Cinsualt and Tempranillo. Mas De Daumas Gassac Blanc is a similarly fascinating blend of grape varieties, with Chardonnay and Viognier taking centre stage. Lauded across the wine world, not for nothing is this Domaine named the Lafite of the Languedoc.

Easily one of the benchmark whites of the region, the 2012 IGP Pays d’Herault Blanc comes from limestone soils and is an eclectic blend of 20% Viognier, 20% Chardonnay, 20% Petit Manseng, 20% Chenin Blanc and the balance a mix of varieties. A serious effort that has both concentration and structure, it offers gorgeous minerality in its citrus blossom, floral and ripe orchard fruit-driven bouquet. Medium-bodied, with beautiful purity and focus, it deserves a classy meal, and should drink beautifully for 3-4 years, possibly longer, although I have no experience with aged examples of this cuvee. Don’t miss a chance to try this superb white. Wine Advocate 93
