Characteristics of Doix

Doix is a red wine produced by the winery Mas Doix, in Poboleda (Tarragona), within D.O.Q. Priorat.

Mas Doix was created in 1998 when the families Doix and Llagostera decided to continue with the winemaking tradition that began in 1850 and that was interrupted by phylloxera. After the phylloxera, in 1902 Grenache and Carignan were again planted, but these were sent to be vinified in the cooperative of Poboleda.

Currently, the whole vinification process is carried out in its facilities. It is a careful and meticulous process, from the selection of the grape in the vineyard to the ageing of all its wines in French oak barrels.

All the vineyards are located between 350 and 600 metres of altitude. Protected by two natural barriers, El Montsant and La Serra de Molló, the vineyards benefit from the cool breeze that enters through the northwest, positively slowing down the ripening process.

Doix s a red wine made with Carignan and Grenache from ancient vineyards planted on slopes of licorella (slate) at an altitude between 350 and 500 metres.

Harvesting is carried out manually, placing the grapes in 10-kg boxes, and selecting the grapes in the winery, on a double selection table. Each plot is turned into wine individually. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel deposits with temperature control, and the maceration is done by sinking the cap. Once the alcoholic fermentation has ended, it goes through the ageing process for 16 months in French oak barrels of extra fine grain wood. This wine is bottled without clarifying or filtering.

Doix is an intense, powerful and mature wine. The powerful nose stands outs, with aromas of ripe red fruit and elegant toasted notes from the barrel. In the mouth, it is full-bodied, with a sweet entry, a broad mid-palate and a long and pleasantly fresh finish. A complex wine with a lot of personality.

Tasting notes Doix

We present the new 2016 vintage, characterised by the wettest winterin the last five years. Not only did it rain in winter, but there was also wet weather up until summer arrived, especially inMarch and April. In summer everything changed, and it was one of the driest inhistory, with only 28 litres being recorded between July and October.If we compare the temperatures in 2012 and 2016, the 2016 crophad to endure a much colder winter than in 2012, which turned outto be positive, since the frost cleared the fields ofvine parasites. During the spring, lower temperaturesthan in 2012 were also recorded.Due to all these climatic conditions there was a delay insprouting, which began on March 28th, and which led to a delayin flowering of between three and four weeks.Once the summer arrived, the Priorat got all the luck, sincethe rains disappeared, while in the rest of Europethey were incessant. It was something that nobody expected considering thewinter we’d had. Taking into account the delay insprouting, the harvest started around mid-October on some ofthe estates.Obtaining fresh wines with an extraordinary acidity is dueto this long duration of the grape in the strain that has so characterisedthis vintage.
The vintage began in autumn in the best possible way, with good rainfalls that would fill the water reserves for optimal growth development. Winter was characterised by low temperatures and even snow covered some areas of Priorat. March started wet and cold, which delayed the budding of the vines. In mid-May, flowering was encouraged and was followed by a somewhat unstable June with several rainfalls.
A year with a very good balance. This vintage was characterised by the absence of water stress for the plants. Winter and spring were favourable in terms of rainfall and temperatures were slightly higher than usual. At the time of budding, there was no rain, so the vines developed in a suitable manner. The flowering took place in a clean way and the Grenache vines settled in an excellent way. Summer was characterised by cool and dry days, but also humid, which led to good photosynthesis and growth of the plants. During the end of the summer, before the harvest, there was still some humidity, which preserved the freshness of the soil and, consequently, achieving a gradual ripening of the grapes, perfect to retain the aromas and the good acidity. The negative factor was the rain during the harvest days. In short, the vintage has been somewhat atypical for Priorat, with wines that are less voluminous than in a normal year in the area, but with a good acidity that is reflected in the wines and that will keep them optimal for many years.
A year that started with some problems with the flowering but ended up being very good. Winter was colder and rainier than usual. Spring continued with days of low temperatures and a lot of water that delayed flowering and the consequent setting problems until the end of March, affected production. After a complicated year, when the summer began, the rains stopped and the temperatures rose, providing excellent ripening due to optimal rainfall during the year. The year has therefore been one of the best in recent years. Fluidity, acidity and concentration augur for a long life of the wines of this vintage.
Sight Intense and deep purple colour. Clean and bright wine with a high layer and elegant, dense, slow-falling tears. Nose Very intense and expressive, concentrated and complex aromas. Its abundant notes of berries in compote are mixed with the refined toasted aromas and the subtle notes of spices. An elegant and intense mineral background rounds out this absolutely pleasant and harmonious set. Taste Superb! A pleasure! A wine with a bulky and embracing attack and a surprisingly fresh, soft and silky mid palate. Very balanced wine, with very nice and tasty tannins (even if they are still noticeable) and a special refreshing acidity. It is very long and persistent and leaves a subtle mellow aftertaste.  An inviting and very enjoyable wine!
Sight Cherry color. Nose Aromas of black fruit, licorice and cocoa mineral background. Taste Ripe fruit flavor with light end.
