EVOLUTION OF THE VINTAGES & TASTING ADVICE

Produced from old non-cloned vines and low yields, Daumas Gassac wines stand up to ageing as do no others.
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.

Drink or lay down

Delicious by itself as an aperitif or with oysters, foie gras or any grilled fish. A truly unique experience!
