We have managed to secure a modest allocation of the 2015 vintage of the Languedoc’s greatest red wine, Mas de Daumas Gassac. 2015 was not only an exceptional year it was also the last wine that its famous founder Aimé Guibert was alive to oversee. At only £19.95 a bottle (in bond) and 30% below its release price next Spring it is irresistible and comes in bottles, magnums & double magnums - all in original wooden cases.
We have also been offered a small quantity of their rather special and unique Mas de Daumas Gassac White 2016 that they are making as we speak - in bottles and magnums which also come in original wooden cases.
The Guibert family believe the wine follows in the footsteps of two of their greatest years 1978 & 2000 (now very rare & serious collectors wines). In their words with some emotion...‘this vintage is majestic, with deliciously complex fruit and great body….thank you and bon voyage Aimé Guibert.'
This superb wine ranks alongside many of Bordeaux' better classified growths and is only £239.40 a case (£19.95 a bottle) in bond will be delivered in the Spring of 2017 when the family will put any remaining stocks on the market at 30% above the current price. It therefore makes a lot of sense to buy a few cases now of what will surely become a very high class and rare collectors wine.
