2010 Mas de Daumas Gassac. Languedoc, France.

IMG_0935

A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Pinot Noir, 3% Syrah.

Deep broody wine.

There’s Iodine, graphite and a slight earthiness.

Drying tannins and a smattering of Herbs de Provence.

Brimming with blackberry, blueberry and cassis.

Young wine with great potential. Took a while to open up.

The thing that got me with this wine is it’s balance. Perfectly poised with nothing really sticking out.

A perfect match with T-Bone grilled on top of fresh rosemary. Excellent stuff!

Approx $95 at Swanbourne Cellars – Liquour Barons. Sealed under Cork.

Tasted 10th November 2012

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.
