Mas de Daumas Gassac is a wine producer in the Languedoc region of France. It is well-known for the high quality of its Cabernet Sauvignon-predominant flagship wine, earning the estate the nickname “the Lafite of the Languedoc”.
The estate is located around 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of Montpellier, near the town of Gignac. Sited away from established, well-known appellations, the wine has been produced as a Vin de Table and under several IGP classifications, with recent vintages being classified as IGP St. Guilhem-le-Désert – Cité d’Aniane. The winery cellars were built in the foundations of a Gallo-Roman mill and on the site of its former pond. Wines are vinified in stainless steel vats with natural air conditioning provided by two springs running under the cellars. This slows down ferments, allowing complex flavor development.
