CHATEAU DU MASSON

CHATEAU DU MASSONThe Gassies-Gautey vineyards are family work several generations of wine growers, producers of marvellous Bordeaux and pioneers among so much of others of this soil of l 'Entre-Deux-Mers whose world reputation is universally recognized.
Situated to 8 kilometers of Saint-Emilion, the vineyard spreads out on the left bank of the Dordogne, distributed in zone of argilo-calcareous hillsides, trays of the same nature and adjoining in river, of a plain on the siliceous ground with in bottom, the veins of grave of the Dordogne which go on in the basement. Thanks to these various countries, provided with a pleiad of mineral, generative salts of delicate aromas, the Château du Masson, nectar of legendary sharpness, is Bordeaux vinifed old-fashioned which requires a lot of surveillance to make the first bottled.
Remarkable Bordeaux red Passion 2014, 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet franc, 5% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, fragrant, robust as it should be but all in suppleness, subtle and intense nose, with notes of ripe cherry, mouth melted and powerful at the same time. Excellent red Bordeaux Château du Masson 2015, rich in color, full-bodied, robust, a wine that smells good plum, pepper and undergrowth, powerful mouth, ample and structured, of a beautiful finish, excellent guard. As for the Bordeaux rosé Fleur du Mayne 2017, it has a very pretty dress, a wine all in subtlety, of fine mouth, with aromas of fresh red fruits and rose, of a pretty fragrant finish, perfect on a quiche or gambas.
Also on sale at the estate in 2019, the pretty bordeaux supérieur Opale 2014, all in mouth, all in seduction, and this bordeaux supérieur L'or Rouge 2012, which comes from a blend of Merlot 50%, Cabernet franc 35% and Malbec 15%. It has a beautiful ruby colour, a nose of fresh and spicy fruits, with a soft attack in the mouth, beautiful red fruits and good salivating tannins.
