2019 was a spectacular vintage, but one of the smallest harvests since the domaine was founded! After a wet autumn and a mild, dry winter, the Mas de Daumas Gassac vineyards were blessed mid-March with magnificent buds. A cool (frostless!) spring led to the latest flowering of the past ten years, and at that point, for the first time in three years, the vineyards were showing promising signs of a “normal” harvest in terms of yield. However, as she often does, Mother Nature had her way. On June 28th, the Gassac Valley was impacted by exceptional heat that damaged half of the production. This gave us great focus on the remaining crop and the remainder of the season provided exceptional conditions, a hallmark of the truly great vintages. The 2019 vintage was blessed with spectacular aromatic concentration, intensity and extremely low yields, providing the perfect balance between power and fruitiness.

Currently maturing in one-to-seven-year-old Burgundy barrels, the Grands vins Mas de Daumas Gassac is revealing great intensity. The colour, nose and mouth are harmonized in a gourmet vibration of black berries mingled with a touch of roasted cacao. Still in its childhood, it already has an extraordinarily exhilarating complexity, revealing wonderful emotions! The wine is noble, marked by freshness and an elegant structure where the concentration and tannic outline are perfectly balanced by acidity and fruitiness.
