Spectator Wine Club - Luxury Gassac
My longed-for trips to Greece and Spain are booked, England thumped India in the 3rd Test, Spurs are top of the league (and Arsenal are bottom, that’s to say last, 20th out of 20, the back marker), and, having long abandoned any attempts at Alcohol-Free August, I’ve been drinking the wines of mighty Mas de Daumas Gassac all week. I can hardly stop grinning. M de DG is generally acknowledged to be the ‘Lafite of the Languedoc’ and if you’re new to its remarkable wines, crikey, you’re in for a treat. I envy you discovering them for the first time.
The 2020 Mas de Daumas Gassac Rosé Frizant is a ridiculous – and ridiculously tasty – blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Petit Manseng and Muscat produced by the Charmat Method (as used to make prosecco). Wickedly seductive with its joyful pink hue, enticing effervescence, fresh wild strawberry fruit and long dry finish, I could barely keep my hands off it. £22.10 down from £23.10. 11.5%vol
The 2020 Mas de Daumas Gassac White is so complex it’s hard to pin down what makes me love it. Blended chiefly from Viognier, Petit Manseng and Chardonnay, it also boasts another dozen varieties including Amigne, Tchilar, Khondorni and Neheleschol (nope, nor me). Despite a gorgeous hit of fresh apricot, baked apple and quince in the mouth, it finishes perfectly dry and just goes on and on, so multi-layered and fulfilling is it. £38.50 down from £39.50. 13.5%vol
The 2019 Mas de Daumas Gassac Red) is similarly intricate and audacious, the Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend including twenty or so other varieties in its makeup. Soft, supple and juicy, its dark fruit leads to a distant finish that manages to be both savoury and chocolaty. £38.50 down from £39.50. 14%vol
