Characteristics of Mas Doix 1902 Carinyena Centenaria

Mas Doix 1902 Carinyena Centenaria 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.

Mas Doix 1902 Carinyena Centenaria is a red wine made with Carignan planted in 1902 in vineyards located on licorella slopes between 350 and 500 metres of altitude.

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.

Tasting notes Mas Doix 1902 Carinyena Centenaria

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.
Mas Doix 1902 Carinyena Centenària 2015 is a powerful, complex and structured wine. On the nose, aromas of wild berries and red fruit stand out with elegant toasted notes over a refined mineral base note. On the palate it is intense, with a voluptuous entrance and a broad, lively mouthfeel, ending with spicy and balsamic notes. This vintage consists of only 3 barrels of this gem from the Priorat.
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.
