A wine that needs time! Not giving much away at present, the 2007 Mas has all the hallmarks of a great wine from this estate. Very well defined with a nod towards Burgundy this year.
2015 to 2030
80% Cabernet Sauvignon
"The 2007 Mas de Daumas Gassac red includes a combined total of around 20% Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Malbec, and Tannat, and a 10% mixture (like its white counterpart) of assorted, at times exotic varieties. A rather reductive overlay to a nose initially dominated by pungent herbs and smoked meats blows off to reveal mulberry, huckleberry, cedar, iodine, and white pepper. In the mouth, this is firmly textured, juicy, bright, and somewhat youthfully tart and angular. Wet stone undertones add to a sense of austerity, but the wine’s energetic brightness and focused black fruits gain the upper hand in a surprisingly refreshing finish. I don’t perceive this as achieving much richness, but it is likely to become more interesting while retaining its kinetic personality for at least 6-8 years." (Wine Advocate
