The Story

When to enjoy Daumas Gassac white vintages

Important: our whites have two distinct incarnations.Don’t muddle them ! Be aware when choosing which one to drink so as not to be disappointed !

The two lives of Daumas Gassac white wines

First Life – Wonderfully fresh and fruity. The early years

Unlike our red wines which are dominated by a single grape variety - (uncloned) Cabernet Sauvignon - our white wines spring from an infinitely complex blend. Four main grape varieties : Viognier, Chardonnay, Petit Manseng and Chenin, make up 90% of the wine. The other varieties : an intriguingly subtle blend including petit Courbu du Béarn, petite Arvine from the Valais, Rhole from Provence, Marsanne from the Rhône, anything up to ten other splendid European varieties.

The result ? A truly Grand Cru that is incredibly pure and fresh, bursting with fruit, yet delightfully smooth almost voluptuous. Our white wines are equally delicious drunk as an aperitif as with a meal, in fact they drink beautifully with almost all dishes.

Second Life – A metamorphosis between 3 and 6 years !

The fruitiness fades and the feshness disappears. New and quite different flavours come through, evolving into something reminiscent of sherry or old Sauternes, a touch “oxidative” with great finesse. You’ll either love it or you won’t ! If you aren’t looking for this type of somehow paradoxical wine, keep an eye on it and drink it during its first couple of years.
