This is a double 90-point gorgeous French Rose at an absurd price. One of the absolute best quality-to-price ratio offers of the year… no questions asked.
Some of you got to taste the highly-rated Moulin de Gassac Rouge when we had it in the store earlier this year. That too is such a great wine for the price, it’s what Mas de Daumas does best. But their Rose has become the winery’s calling card. Maybe that’s because a Rose that gets released for $13/btl shouldn’t be as good as it is, nor should it come with so many rave reviews. But it is… and here we are.
Josh Raynolds of Vinous’ gave it their highest score ever in their 9 years reviewing the wine, calling it “lively and sharply focused” as well as complimenting the “very good clarity on the palate.” James Suckling saw it even one point higher at 91, calling it “Medium-bodied, with a round, creamy yet fresh palate. Delicate and balanced.”
It’s just a really, really solid wine. Beautiful display of fresh red and citrus fruits with great tension, strong acid and a beautiful mineral cut on the finish. Everything you want in a summer Rose.
91 Points, James Suckling
Very pale rose tint with aromas of peaches, white strawberries, pomegranates and fresh flowers. It’s medium-bodied with a round, creamy yet fresh palate. Delicate and balanced. Cinsault, carignan and grenache. Delicious now.
90 Points, Vinous
Bright, salmon skin color. Lively and sharply focused on the nose, displaying fresh red berry and citrus fruit aromas and sneaky mineral and floral nuances. Shows very good clarity on the palate with nervy strawberry, redcurrant and tangerine flavors, plus a touch of honeysuckle. Finishes taut and long, with repeating florality and firm mineral cut.
