Frizant • A New Fan

We have been fans of Mas de Daumas Gassac Rosé Frizant since Basile Guibert served the 2018 vintage at a lunch in December 2019.

With the current lockdown in Singapore, that seems like ages ago.

The Singapore-based Frenchman is a member of the owning family of what is often referred to as “the Lafite of the Languedoc”.

“Frizant” was inspired by a trip founders Veronique & Aime Guibert made to Italy.

Last week, came news that Frizant has found a new fan.

Not just any fan but highly respected wine writer Jancis Robinson MW.

Frizant 2019 – composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance 30% spread between Mourvedre, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Petit Manseng and Muscat – worked its magic on Robinson.

Her tasting notes:

Quite frankly, delightful! Tamarillo, guava, salt, tomato jam, blood orange. Flavours and layers pinging and colliding across the palate – you can almost hear the shouts of unfettered laughter. Sumac and paprika dance in a hot popping popcorn pot. Papaya tastes silky and weighty and yet there is a racy edge. This was absolutely divine with Ottolenghi’s grilled courgette, feta and cascabel honey salad” Score: 17
