Mas-de-Daumas-Gassac-2

In the past we have offered the enchanting and unique wines of this vanguard Languedoc estate alongside our Rhône en primeur release. But in fact, these wines are done a disservice by being tacked on to another region. They are genuine stars in their own right. It is with great pleasure that we shine a light on this unique parcel of land in France’s sauvage south with the release of their magnificent 2016 rouge and joyful 2017 blanc.

RHÔNE 2016 EN PRIMEUR: An exceptional vintage

Rhone-October2017-1

An exceptional vintage: opulent fruit, melting tannins, and energetic freshness 2016 is a roaring success in the Rhône. It follows the excellent 2015 whose release saw an upsurge in interest in this classic French region of diverse expression. Where 2015 produced Northern Rhône Syrahs of remarkable depth and complexity, 2016 has produced what many growers in the South are describing as the vintage of a generation.
