CLIMATE:

2021 was characterized by a cold winter, ending with a severe frost in April, which affected many of France’s vineyards. Between 31 March and 16 April, the temperature in our wild valley dropped to -5°C on several occasions, partially destroying the potential harvest.
We then had a rainy summer, with about 40mm in July and another 40mm in August. The temperatures remained cool allowing a slow ripening, gathering complexity in the grapes that is typical of the greatest growth.
A fresh and elegant vintage!

TASTING HINTS

The five lives of Mas de Daumas Gassac Red Wines Laid down in a cool cellar (14°-16°C, 57-60°F) even the oldest can happily wait with no problem for many years. However, being laid down in warmer temperatures will speed up the wines’ maturity.

Period of fruit

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!
