D1h. Deep red, red rim, 5.5. Generous intense bouquet of dark fruits, blackcurrant, also spicy notes behind. Relatively elegant harmonious palate, fruits, good tannins, elegant finish. This is the best MDD I have had for years. Love the elegant style (for a Languedoc). Drink now-2020
It's remarkable how much the fruity bombastic character of this wine reminds me of Andrea Franchetti's Le Cupole (Cab Franc) 2007. Not as hot however. This really needs a couple years to come together, tannins are still quite tangy on the finish. Enjoyable to drink now but there's more textural magic to come I'd wager.
D1h. Berry red, red-yellow rim, 5.5.Initially rather closed down neutral nose, later it opens up showing fine spicy fruit with some discrete wood. The palate is relatively elegant with racy fruit and quality tannins, fine finish. Drink 2017 onwards

(Mas de Daumas Gassac Vin de Pays de l'Hérault) Bright medium dark ruby red color; floral, rosehips, light clove, green herb and moss nose; tart cassis, clove, mint, cranberry, mineral, cedar palate with fine tannins; medium-plus finish (needs 3-5 years) 91+ pts.
(Mas de Daumas Gassac (Vin de Pays de l'Herault)) A very youthful hue, a red-purple colour, with lots of dense fruit on the nose. Midweight on the palate, nicely balanced, with quite firm acidity. Not a lot of flesh at present, but I suspect this will fatten up with some time in barrel. There is certainly good raw material here in the shape of rich, primary fruit. Potentially very good.
