Celler Mas Doix is most definitely enjoying being one of the Priorat wineries that recently scored an astonishing 98 points from the world-famous wine critic, Robert Parker. The wine region of Priorat seems to be going from strength to strength. Many predicted it would be a fashion or a phase. Priorat is gaining international prestige worldwide, and indeed within Spain itself (actually a tough market for top-end wines). Located in the wine village of Poboleda, just north of Torroja del Priorat and Porrera (2 of the other principal wine villages of Priorat), the Doix family are longstanding characters in the Priorat winemaking scene. They have 20 hectares of their own vineyards and an additional 10 hectares of controlled vines. Like the other wineries in the region, they concentrate on growing old vine (up to 70 years) Garnacha Tinta (Grenache Noir) and the ubiquitous Cariñena. Their carefully tended vines are on terraced slopes, resembling the Douro Valley in Portugal.
Although the Doix family has been involved in viticultural activities for the last 100 years in Priorat, the Celler Mas Doix is a very new venture, only established in 1998. The fact that wine critics are already tumbling over themselves to get this wine is a credit to their hard work in a concise period of time. There are four brands, the old vines Mas Doix being the most celebrated and the Mas Doix Salanques considered being an excellent value Priorat red. Mas Doix uses 100% French oak in their cellars, and the wines, while extremely powerful, well balanced with enormous aging potential. A visit to the Priorat wine region is a must for serious wine lovers. It is literally untouched, full of hidden medieval hamlets, top-quality restaurants, and of course, plenty of world-class wineries.
