Harvest: picking under clear skies with hot weather
Classic Medoc vinification – long fermentation and maceration (20 days at least) in stainless steel tank – no filtration
From the first autumn after bottling. A true basket of fruit, hints of what’s to come.
Period of youth
Crisp fruit and tannins to the fore. Lasts from three to seven years. A delicious and invigorating wine to drink. An absolute must.
Period of maturity
Velvety tannins appear, the fruit fades. This period lasts for seven to fourteen years. The wine reveals its true complexity.
Period of plenitude
Between fourteen and twenty-one years. The fruity flavours fade giving way to tertiary aromas with hints of dried roses, woodland moss, truffles, game!
Period of dreams
Over twenty-one years, most Mas de Daumas Gassac vintages will continue to evolve into magical flavours if laid down in a cool cellar with the right humidity. A treasure for grandchildren to discover in grandad’s cellar!
