2006 Mas de Daumas Gassac Rouge10729
The Grand Cru of the Midi. In 1971, Professor Henri Enjalbert of Bordeaux III University, a geographer specialized in winegrowing geology, visited Mas de Daumas Gassac and determined, after walking in the valley for several hours, that the soil consisted of glacial sandstone comparable to the best terroirs of the Côtes d’Or in Burgundy. Most of the vineyard is an uncloned form of cabernet sauvignon, as it grew in the Médoc before 1914; the rest is a museum of rare and uncloned vines from across the world, from Portugal to Switzerland. | Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon however this blend sees everything from Brancellao to Chkhaveri. Wild. Great vintage, too.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon, Field Blend.
