I had two vintages of the old-vine cuvée to taste side by side, starting with the 2014 Doix Costers de Vinyes Velles. Made of 55% Cariñena and 45% Garnacha from old vines on slopes on slate llicorella soils, the fermentation and aging are the same as for the centenary Carignan: fermentation in stainless steel with neutral yeasts and an élevage of 16 months in new French barriques. It has moderate alcohol and high acidity. It has already started developing some tertiary notes and shows some graphite and wet slate notes. The palate shows great balance, with concentration and freshness—what you're aiming for in a wine like this where pure power might be too much. 5,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2016.
Poboleda is another village where Cariñena excels, and the 1902 old-vine cuvée from Mas Doix can be a very good example. If last time I was delighted because I had two vintages of that wine, this time I got three! Could it be that they are selling at a faster pace now?

Mas Doix

Mas Doix

A tradition that began over a century ago, the Doix and Llagostera families founded the Mas Doix winery in 1998. Located in the village of Poboleda, found in the rugged Priorat region of northeastern Spain, the estate focuses on the cultivation of old-vine Garnacha Tinta and Cariñena, which are both native varieties. The resulting wines have already caught the attention of world famous wine critics, receiving almost perfect scores from Robert Parker in some vintages. Their collection of wines includes, the top-quality old-vine Mas Doix, as well as Mas Doix Salanques, which is the property’s top value production.
Priorat

Priorat

Located in the region of Cataluña, Priorat is one of the most qualitative and secluded Spanish wine regions. It is also one of the most dramatic, with vineyards sculpted into ancient, rolling, craggy and stony hillsides, some overlooking the sea. It was originally named after the priory that the Carthusian monks established in the 12th century. Though vines have long been planted here, it was a region that had been somewhat forgotten until the 1990s when it was revolutionised. Though many of the local, old plantings were kept, such as Garnacha and Cariñena, French grape varieties were planted, most notably, Cabernet Sauvingon, Syrah, Merlot and some Pinot Noir. As a result, the wines do not really have a singular identity or style. However, due to the many old vines and the incredibly low yields, its wines can be powerful. Some of the most famous and sought after wines include Clos Mogador, Clos Erasmus and L’Ermita. ...
