Mas de Daumas Gassac Rouge 75cl
Often referred to as the Grand Cru of the Midi (South of France), the Mas de Daumas Gassac top-tier wines have reached international cult status.
Aime Guibert,along with his wife Veronique, purchased the property in 1974, and began planting grapes. After years of traveling around the world for his family's leather business, Aimé developed a love for the history and cultures of the world. This anthropological spirit led him to seek out rare grape varieties from around the globe. He even went so far as to find the grape of the wine served at the last supper! As a result, there are 40 different grape varieties planted on the property, from rare and uncloned vines from far flung places, including Israel, Portugal, Switzerland, Armenia, Madeira, etc.
While many would see this as an extreme and crazy endeavour, this diversity led to unorthodox blends and truly singular wines. They were the very first estate in the Languedoc to adopt full organic farming and can honestly say that the Gassac estate has never seen any chemicals. Their commitment to preserving and protecting the land is unparalleled.
