Presentation of the vineyard
Mas de Daumas Gassac needs no introduction for those who are interested in wine from the Languedoc. Véronique and Aimé Guibert started the winery in 1970 which is today considered as one of the best "Cru"- wines in Languedoc. Moulin de Gassac is the vineyard's everyday, but selected wines, produced under the same requirements as the exclusive wines of Mas de Daumas Gassac. The winery is conducted in the most exposed areas north of the city of Sète, more precisely in Villeveyrac for red wines, while the vineyards for the white and rosé are located in Pinet, along the banks of the Etang de Thau. The ambition of Moulin de Gassac is to make wines which express the typical "Languedoc terroir" and to create a unique and elegant style by mixing typical grape varieties from Languedoc with varieties originating from Bordeaux.
An elegant, light red color with terracotta hues. The nose is complex with style as typical for Pinot noir. Mainly aromas of mature cherries and some hints of moka. The taste is light, fruity and juicy. Great freshness and soft tannins. A red wine to serve at various occasions, to pair with cured meat or with a pasta with ceps.
