Tasting of 23 vintages of the Mas de Daumas Gassac White

Saturday 17 February 2018

The jury was made up of 22 tasters, 19 tasters invited with Samuel, Roman and Basile Guibert.

For each of the 23 vintages selected, 2 bottles were taken out of our underground cellars the day before the vertical tasting. They were then placed upright in a wine cellar at 4°C in anticipation of opening them the following day. The wine cellar was turned down to a minimum since the room temperature of the tasting area warms up by around 10°C in the space of 30 minutes. This allowed tasters to taste the white wines at the correct temperature by the end of the wine service. The 506 glasses – 23 per taster – were carefully washed and placed in the tasting room.


10am – 11am: Opening and temperature control. The 46 bottles were opened, checked, then immediately resealed and placed back in the wine cellar.
1.45pm – 2pm: Service of the wines started once all of the tasters had taken their places, leaving the oldest vintages till last.
2pm – 4pm: Silent vertical tasting of the 23 vintages of the Mas de Daumas Gassac White.
4.30pm – 6pm: Round table and comments from each taster. General evaluation and choosing of their top 5
