Years ago, the Catalonian government initiated a pull-out program endorsing farmers to rip out their Carignane and plant Grenache and other preferred varietals. Carignane is vigourous, and under certain vineyard practices, can produce a large quantity of fruit at diminished quality. As a result, much Carignane was made into “jug wine”. It gave the grape a poor reputation.

When crop load is controlled, however, or when vines are very old, Carignane produces rich, round, full-bodied, vibrant wine with soft tannins and bright acidity. The best can age gracefully. These are special wines worth pursuing.

The flagship wine of the property, “Doix”, is 55% Carignane and 45% Grenache. The grapes come from vines between 80 and 115 years old, with small, exceptional average production of around 400 grams per vine. Harvested by hand and transported to the winery in small crates, the fruit ferments in small lots. It matures around 16 months in new French oak barrels before it is bottled unfined and unfiltered. The extraordinarily tiny yields means that each vine produces enough juice to fill one-quarter of a bottle. The Cariñena brings herbs, flowers and spices to the palate, together with mineral freshness while the Garnacha provides perfume and plush red fruit flavours.

“An almost equal blend of Garnacha and Carinyena from 70-100 year old vineyards around Poboleda. This is classic, smoky Priorat. Savoury and structured yet packed full of ripe plum, blackberry and strawberry fruits, liquorice, iodine and smoky llicorella. Grainy, firm and layered. This is excellent Priorat with a long life ahead of it. 2024-2036.”

“The 2021 Doix Costers de Vinyes Velles keeps the classical profile of ripe berries, aromatic herbs, spice and toasted notes from the élevage. It’s very young and undeveloped. It has 14.5% alcohol with a pH of 3.27 and 6.78 grams of acidity, parameters of ripeness, power and freshness that define this cuvée of old vines, 55% Cariñena and 45% Garnacha. It’s supple and tasty, with a fine thread in the palate. A very regular wine. It was bottled in March 2023 after 14 months in barrels, 50% of them new.”
95 points, Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, May 2024
