2012 Mas Doix Les Crestes Priorat 750ml

Celler Mas Doix is a winery created by the Doix & Llagostera family in 1998; it is the reinitiation of a tradition that began in 1850. The gold medal obtained in the Universal Exhibition of Barcelona in 1888 and the silver medal won in the Universal Exhibition of Paris in 1878, remind us of the passion with which Juan Extrems Doix, Juan Doix's grandfather, used long ago to look after the vineyards and produce his wines. The phylloxera outbreak did not mean the end of the family's vineyards. They were replanted with Garnacha and Cariñena varieties, native to the Priorat region, thereby maintaining the growth of the vineyards while the production was sent to the co-operative in Poboleda until it was produced in our winery. Nowadays, we are laboring with love and passion for the fruit grown in our hundred-year-old vineyards so we can produce great wines.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 94

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: A stunningly profound Priorat, the 2012 Les Crestes is made from 80% Grenache, 10% Carinena and 10% Syrah aged eight months in French oak. This single vineyard wine emerges from a parcel planted 350-400 meters above sea level in the pure slate soil that the locals call “licorella.” The blend includes significant amounts of old vine material. The wine’s deep purple color is accompanied by sweet aromas of black raspberries, spring flowers and crushed rocks, elegant, medium to full-bodied flavors and a long, zesty, rich finish. The oak is pushed to the background, and the wine’s freshness and exuberance are well-displayed. Poboleda is one of the two coldest micro-climates of Priorat, so this is clearly a more feminine-styled wine. Drink it over the next 4-6 years.
