The Mas de Daumas Gassac Grands Vins owe everything to Professor Emile Peynaud’s teaching! It is only fair that the greatest wine born here, takes its name after him! The imposing Cuvée Emile Peynaud, in honour of the one who taught us everything and showed us the art of creating a wine faithful to its terroir without being a slave to modern technique.
The first plot of vineyard discovered by Henry Enjalbert, forty years ago, the poorest, most stony and arid area where the vines suffer and send their roots deep down. This prestigious piece of land, harvested and vinified separately, will give birth to the Cuvée Emile Peynaud, the finest jewel of the Gassac valley; from pure uncloned Cabernet Sauvignon, with a yield of less than 25 hectolitres per hectare.
Rare! This 2015 vintage is only the fifth Cuvée Emile Peynaud to be born in 40 years and the last vintage to be seen by the founder-winemaker Aimé Guibert. Rare! Less than 1700 bottles and 200 magnums produced, available early 2018!
A quintessential wine with the characteristics of the Mas de Daumas Gassac Grands Vins – dark ruby red, powerful density, marked by the deep power of aromas so original to the Mas de Daumas Gassac terroir. The Cuvée Emile Peynaud is an expression of love and gratitude, a wine symbol of times past.
