This "only Grand Cru du midi" for Hugh Jonhson is considered by Robert Parker as "exceptional". This "Lafite en languedoc", named after Gault Millau, is one of the top 10 wines in the world for Michael Broadbent. In 30 years, Véronique and Aimé Guibert have achieved the rare status of "cult wine" with the wines of Mas Daumas Gassac. Today, the young generation carries these values: respect for the elders, the terroir and the creation of unique wines!Lire plus Learn more
Located in the Agly valley in a wild environment where nature, well preserved, is king, the estate extends over an area of 14 hectares. Created in 2015 by three enthusiasts, the organic conversion was done from the beginning for both cultivation and vinification, benefiting from an ideal environment, an exceptional terror and an optimal climate, the vines,
Mas de Daumas Gassac is first and foremost an exceptional terroir discovered in the 1970s by the great scientist Henri Enjalbert, holder of the chair of geography at the Bordeaux Academy. Henri Enjalbert discovered that there were about forty hectares of deep soil in the middle of the Arboussas massif, under the thick mantle of the scrubland, perfectly drained and poor in humus and plant matter, rich in mineral oxides. A soil that Enjalbert compares to the best Burgundy terroirs of the Côte d'Or! The team on the estate is united and passionate. Each in his own field but all closely linked to each other. Over the past forty years, the field has been enriched by the contribution of some thirty employees in the service of excellence. From the vine to the cellar, from the reception of visitors to the estate and the relationship with private and professional customers, several teams work to serve the great wines of Gassac.
Mas de Daumas Gassac relies on winegrowers who respect their terroir and are faithful to three main precepts:
- Respect for the environment: by creating vines with small areas, it makes it possible to insert them into the Garrigue forest without destroying it.
- The complexity of the wines: these 50 ha of vines inserted in 100 ha of forest, allow to enrich the vintages with new scents: arbutus, cistus, wild mint, etc.
- The preserved ecosystem: this unique forest makes it possible to maintain the link between fauna, flora and viticulture. Daumas Gassac rejects all forms of chemical fertilizer with an emphasis on natural compost.
"The harvest is carried out as before, by hand. A first sorting is carried out in the vineyard by the harvesting team and only the beautiful ripe grapes, picked by an attentive hand, will enter the vat. We follow the maturities with vigilance in order to harvest each grape variety at the best time. We also wanted to respect the wild splendour of the Upper Gassac Valley. Hence the choice to create vines of small areas, real clearings inserted in the immense forest of scrubland that dominates the landscape."
