Often referred to as the Grand Cru of the Midi (South of France), the Mas de Daumas Gassac top-tier wines have reached international cult status.
Aimé Guibert,along with his wife Véronique, purchased the property in 1974, and began planting grapes. After years of traveling around the world for his family’s leather business, Aimé developed a love for the history and cultures of the world. This anthropological spirit led him to seek out rare grape varieties from around the globe. He even went so far as to find the grape of the wine served at the last supper! As a result, there are 40 different grape varieties planted on the property, from rare and uncloned vines from far flung places, including Israel, Portugal, Switzerland, Armenia, Madeira, etc. While many would see this as an extreme and crazy endeavour, this diversity led to unorthodox blends and truly singular wines.
Created in the 1990s by the visionary founder of Domaine Mas de Daumas Gassac, Moulin de Gassac was a reaction to the EU’s vine-pull scheme that led to uprooting of hundreds of thousands of hectares of vines across the Languedoc. Aimé Guibert partnered with local vignerons who had good quality sites in order to save these terroirs. Today, the Moulin de Gassac wines represent the classic terroir of the Languedoc with the signature elegance and freshness of Mas de Daumas Gassac.
