The 2015 Mas de Daumas Gassac Blanc is composed of a unique blend of thirty-two percent Petit Manseng, thirty percent Viognier, twenty percent Chenin Blanc and eighteen percent Chardonnay. The wine offers up a deep and perfumed nose of pear, tangerine, candied lime peel, musky floral tones, a fine base of soil and just a whisper of lanolin in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and perfumed in the mouth, with a fine core, lovely focus and grip and a long, complex and zesty finish. This is really a lovely wine, albeit utterly unique in its aromatic and flavor profile. 2017-2025+.
