Mas de Daumas Gassac 2016/17 En Primeur offer

What the Guiberts say: "The 2016 vintage is an iron hand coated in velvet. 2016 is characterised by tremendous freshness with ripe fruits (blackcurrants) and spicy notes, and a very long, elegant palate. This wine presents excellent concentration of fruit and is currently ageing in our underfround Gallo-Roman cellars."

Vineyard management changed in 2016 with the reintroduction of horse-drawn ploughing and sheep grazing in the vineyard as an alternative to mechanical weed control during the early part of the growing season.

The wines

Mas de Daumas Gassac 2016 Rouge (6x75cl) @ 120 IB
The low-yielding vineyards of MDG average over 40 years and make some of the Languedoc's finest and most long-lived wines. The red, a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and numerous other varietals, has explosive fruit and great natural elegance which will make this accessible in its youth but with the ability to age. The 10-15% new wood used in ageing this wine helps with its texture without imparting any oak flavours.

Mas de Daumas Gassac 2017 Blanc (6x75cl) @ 120 IB
Viognier, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Petit Verdot are just some of the 18 varieties that make up the Blanc, an exceptional wine whose watchwords are minerality, purity and finesse.
