Mas de Daumas Gassac was originally bought as a holiday retreat by Parisian glove maker, Aime Guibert in 1970. However, a visiting oenologist from Bordeaux, Henri Enjalbert, identified a particular red soil that shared many characteristics with some of the great estates from Bordeaux and Burgundy. 1.6ha of Cabernet Sauvignon vines were duly planted in 1971 and the first wines produced in 1972. Following Gault et Millau’s description of the estate as ‘the Lafite of the Languedoc’ the wines quickly attained cult status and the wines have now become highly prized.
