Mas de Daumas Gassac
The story of Mas de Daumas Gassac is one of vision, enterprise, passion and pride. When Véronique and Aimé Guibert first purchased their farm in the charming Gassac valley they didn’t realise that they had stumbled upon one of the most unique micro-climates in the region, perfect for making notable, age-worthy wines. A visiting professor from Bordeaux identified a particular red soil that was common to certain great estates in the Médoc and Grand Cru Burgundies. The family decided they would plant Cabernet Sauvignon vines on this particular plot and the story of Mas de Daumas Gassac as a top quality producer began in earnest. Soon they were acknowledged as the first ‘Grand Cru’ producer in the Languedoc, proof that fine wines could be made in a region previously only thought of as good enough for entry level production. With the passing of founder Aimé Guibert, at the age of 91 in 2016, the running of the estate has passed to his sons Samuel, Gaël, Roman and Basile. They've been working at the mas since the early 2000s and, as a team, look set to continue the to build on the fine reputation their father has established.
