Mas de Daumas Gassac was called “the one First Growth of the Languedoc” by wine writer Hugh Johnson. This is their superb Réserve – a crisp, exotically aromatic white that captures the brilliance of the Guibert family’s Grand Vin at a modest price.

The wine’s humble IGP status (equivalent of the old vin de pays) belies the fact that this lush, exotic white is from some of southern France’s best terroir. In 1970 Aimé and Véronique Guibert, former glovemakers to royalty, bought a chunk of the sleepy Gassac valley. They only discovered its true value when a visiting friend, the eminent geology professor Henri Enjalbert, remarked how the soil reminded him of the terroir in Burgundy’s Côte d’Or. This is now a top estate – some of its cuvées cost well over £100. The Guiberts’ son Samuel created this Réserve exclusively for us, using a carefully chosen array of native and international grapes. It has all the pedigree of the top wine but at an affordable price. Complex, weighty and rich.
