Two separate tastings of the 1995 Rouge revealed a wine with good sweet fruit flavors of black-cherries, cassis, peppers, and olives, but the high tannin may be too much for the wine's level of extract. Time will tell, but at present I have some serious reservations about this austere wine's overall balance.

This wine was tasted in May, 1997.

This was one of the first Languedoc-Roussillon estates to fully exploit the potential that exists in this windswept, sunny region. I have had the pleasure of buying, cellaring, and drinking all of the Mas de Daumas Gassac reds since 1978. They have always been very good, but I am unimpressed with the rustic tannin that remains in so many vintages I purchased and cellared. The wines have always possessed good depth and robustness, but they are best drunk in their first 5-6 years of life when they are exuberant, fiery, and mouthfilling. To my taste, the roughness of the tannin becomes exaggerated with long term aging. There have been refinements to the wines' style, as the tannin in recent vintages is somewhat sweeter in the top years, which may auger well for more harmonious development past 7 or 8 years of age.

Though sweet, almost caramelly on the nose very dry, oak and tannic grip on the palate. A couple of years later: good fruit, delicious, flavoury, discreet oak and tannin. Most recently: still very deep; bricky, Bordeaux-like nose (Cabernet Sauvignon
