  • Tasting Notes
  • Winery
  • Fruitiness, freshness and expressivity. A young, genuine and sweet Priorat. The year is to be remembered for the heatwave that lasted until the end of June, with temperatures of up to 43 °C that especially affected the Carignan. A hot summer, but with showers that cooled off the vines. Optimal conditions continued through the end of August resulting in grapes that were concentrated and well balanced. Great quality with slightly lower yields. Less than 40,000 bottles!


    • Vintage: 2019
    • Appellation: D.O.Q. Priorat
    • Grapes: 80% 20-year old Grenache, 10% old Carignan, 10% and 15-year old Syrah vines

    "The young and tender red 2019 Les Crestes is an approachable blend of 80% Garnacha and 10% each Cariñena and Syrah. It has ripe black fruit and licorice aromas and is Mediterranean, warm and comforting. It fermented with neutral yeasts in stainless steel and matured in second use French oak barrels for eight months. But the oaking is very light, and the wood feels very integrated, coming through as quite fruit-driven"

     Mas Doix

    The Celler Mas Doix was created by the Doix and Llagostera families 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 the Doix family 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 the Garnacha and Carinena varieties, native to the Priorat region, thereby maintaining the growth of the vineyards while the production was sent to the cooperative in Poboleda until it was able to be produced in Mas Doix's winery. Nowadays, the family labors with love and passion for the fruit grown in their hundred-year-old vineyards so they can produce great wines.
