EVOLUTION OF THE VINTAGES & TASTING ADVICE
Produced from old non-cloned vines and low yields, Daumas Gassac wines stand up to ageing as do no others.
Laid down in a cool cellar (14°-16°C, 57-60°F) even the oldest can happily wait with no problem for many years. However,
being laid down in warmer temperatures will speed up the wines’ maturity.
94 Points - "The 2017 Rouge is fabulous. Black cherry, cedar, leather, tobacco, dark spice and game are front and center in this potent Languedoc red. Ample and powerful, with a bit more breadth than usual, the 2017 has so much to offer. I would give the 2017 a few more years in bottle, even though it is incredibly expressive today. The rich, substantial finish is a thing of beauty." - Antonio Galloni (Vinous Media, Oct 2020)
