Mas Doix Doix 2010
Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Costers de Vinas Viejas is a blend of 55% Garnacha and the rest Carinena from vineyards planted in 1902 on slate slopes. The wine has the power, concentration and balance of the old vines and is a textbook Priorat with those alluring aromas of wet slate and ripe blackberries. The 16 months aging in new French oak become unnoticeable when you have this intensity of fruit, and the aromas and tannins from the barrels are neatly integrated into the fruit. This is a big, elegant Priorat that should evolve nicely in bottle. 5,500 bottles were produced in 2010. Drink 2015-2025.
