Mas de Daumas Gassac
“Respect” If our philosophy had to be summarized in one word, then this would have to be it. We are motivated by the desire to produce authentic wines, that are a genuine reflection of our sublime, complex terroir. On this basis, we think of ourselves more as go-betweens than alchemists, with a desire to express the soul and flavours of the terroir in our wines. This is a huge task, of which we humbly try to be worthy every day that we spend in the vineyard and the winery; above all, our goal is to respect the wild splendour of the upper Gassac Valley. For this reason, we chose to create small areas of vines, that stand as clearings in the immense garrigue forest that dominates the landscape.
The Mas de Daumas Gassac has an exceptional soil, perfectly drained, rich in mineral oxides (iron, copper, gold, etc) and poor in humus and vegetable matter. The vines are essentially uncloned Cabernet Sauvignon (as it reigned in the Médoc before 1914) for the red and 20%, Cabernet franc, Malbec, Merlot, Tannat, Petit Verdot, Carmenere, Syrah, Pinot noir as well as ten ancient and rare varieties.
