Tasting note

“The 2016 has a powerful nose (which is not so far from those from Doix of that same year) with floral notes mixed with notes of damp graphite and slate, and a touch of bark and earth topped off with aromatic herbs that are reminiscent of the Priorat. Abundant tanin is found in the mouth, with a slight dustiness and the electric freshness of the year.”

Vintage 2016

An unforgettable vintage. Small and healthy grapes, fruit of the driest summer we have had to date after a rainy spring. The moderate average temperatures with showers in September provided us with one of the calmest and longest vintages in the last few years. Excellent ripeness and acidity. A vintage that will stand as a benchmark, one of the best in the last few years.
