Mas de Daumas Gassac Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2020

Delightful as always. Delicate, floral, a bit peppery in this vintage, but no issues striking that perfect balance of ripeness and coolness. Ethereal. Hits its stride with an hour of air, excellent cellar potential. — 21 days ago

I’ve always found them really approachable in their first few years, there is a magic to the youthful fruit, then they close down a bit usually 4-7 yo before showing well again. Funnily enough, the back of the label says more or less the same thing in so many words…

“enjoy for its complex fruit character in the first five years, or from 7 to 25 years for its depth and complexity.” Written on the back label!
