Pairing Ideas: A Priorat not to be missed, either to start enjoying now or to be kept in the cellar for about five years. It would be an ideal pairing with meats such as roast lamb, a beef round in sauce or smaller game, as well as with aged cheese.  We had success pairing ours recently with duck fried rice! 

Profile: The nose is a symphony of berries, such as blueberries, raspberries and currants, against a balsamic background and wood undertones. In the mouth it is volumous and coats the tongue with a dense texture. It has a good structure made up of tannins that are still there but will be cleaned up with some time kept in the bottle. The end is drawn out and reminds one of blackberries and cherries. 

Producer:  Since the creation of Mas Doix in 1998 by Valenti and Ramon Llagostera, we have taken on the commitment to maintain, care for and strengthen our vines while exercising respect for our environment, its culture and its people.  With dedication, consistency and responsibility, we love every last inch of an optimal terroir for the cultivation of low yield vines that provide us with excellent grapes.
