2015 MAS DOIX Priorat 1902 Centenary Carignan 75cl (Catalunya, Spain)
Style - Spicy
Grapes - 100% Carignan
Tasting - A really super elegant expression. If you're expecting concentration it's here but not at the expense of drinkability. Sweet damsons, rosemary, and tapenade flavours in a very refined and grown up wine. It's an exercise in less is more. Apart from the price that is. A really singular wine that will stay imprinted on your memory.
FYI: This comes from the best Carignan grapes of Mas Doix. From vines planted in 1902. Maybe this will make the ideal gift for anyone celebrating their 119th birthday in 2021?
And, in case you are wondering, the estate's name is pronounced 'Maz Doy-sh'
