Often called ‘The Lafite of the Languedoc,’ the iconic Mas de Daumas Gassac estate has been praised by top critic Hugh Johnson for setting “an example of excellence.” Their Grand Vin white sells for over $40 – but because we go way back with owners the Guibert family, they craft a special Grande Réserve made in its image just for you.
It’s a delicious blend of Grenache Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Viognier. Along with its slew of other awards from past vintages, the Guibert’s Grand Réserve seriously impressed judges at the 2017 Concours des Vins Lyon, taking home a (well-deserved) gold medal.
Just wait until you taste it. Look out for plush layers of peach, pear and citrus, plus savory notes of wild herbs. This is a crowd-pleasing white that will work well with a variety of foods. Try it with roasted white meats (we love classic roast chicken with rosemary and lemon) or aged goat cheese.
Top Tip: Wine Spectator featured a previous vintage of Grande Réserve de Gassac Blanc in their ‘What We’re Drinking Now’ column and it promptly sold out … so hurry to grab your share of this 2016 before it’s all gone, too.
