2008 Mas de Daumas Gassac Blanc

Decanted the wine for about 45 minutes and it was a smart move to do as it increased its aromatics considerably. Served the wine next to a dish I enjoyed a lot during my lunch with Mrs Raffaella Bologna while visiting Braida in Rochetta Tanaro in Asti: grilled bell peppers with anchovies, a simple but absolutely delicious dish.

Deep yellow lemon color. The nose gained in intensity with decanting and the initial tropical fruits and Asian spices aromas only showed themselves better. Full bodied and rich on the palate, the wine maintains freshness while the strong flavors remind of apricot, tropical fruit and spices. There is a medium plus finish with subtle citric fruit in the aftertaste. (90/100)
