Some years ago a guy called Guibert bought a vineyard in Languedoc that reportedly had similar soil conditions to the top estates on Bordeaux. In no time the wines of his estate, called Daumas Gassac, were fetching huge prices and appearing on wine lists in top restaurants. The story left me cold due to the sky-high price, however I have become a fan of the everyday white wines produced at Gassac – discovered at a wine merchant in my native Tipperary. They have become one of our house whites on Irish trips. And now the Chardonnay is at LCBOs.
What I like about Moulin Gassac Chardonnay is the delicious pure expression – lemony fresh with just enough richness to tease and delight. And have you uttering the yummy word. Lovely house wine – with food, with friends, or sipping by yourself.
