Within 30 years the Mas de Daumas Gassac wines have reached the rare status of "cult wine" that is only given to a few exceptional estates. A Unique history: the first wines ever produced in the Gassac valley are said to date back to 780A.D. when St Benoit d'Aniane, one of Charlemagne's counsellors created the first vineyard in this magical valley. An Unexplained Terroir and very cool microclimate: the terroir (soil) of Mas de Daumas Gassac was rediscovered in 1971 by Henri Enjalbert, Professor of Geology at Bordeaux University. He considered the Gassac valley to be " the ideal and unique terroir to produce a Grand Cru wine". The estatr benefits from a rare and still unexplained red, power-fine glacial soil strikingly similar to that of the best parts of Burgundy and a cool microclimate derived from the Gassac river, several natural springs, and the influence of the nearby mountains and sea. These characteristics are extremely rare in the South of France.
