Different wines with the DNA of Mas Doix.
Elengance and freshness from the beginning to the end.
A record vintage. Small healthy grapes, fruit of the driest summer we have had to date after a rainy spring. The moderate average temperatures with small showers in September provided us with one of the calmest and longest vintages of the last few years. Excellent ripeness and acidity. A benchmark vintage, one of the best in the last few years.
A vintage marked by average and maximum temperatures above the values of the last ten years, along with a low level of rain. All the same, it is under these conditions that our vineyards and our grape showed us their incredible capacity, not only to survive, but also to give us a small quantity of the very highest quality. One of the earliest and shortest spring harvests that we can remember.
The year is to be remembered for the heatwave that lasted until the end of June, with temperatures of up to 43 °C that especially affected the Carignan. A hot summer, but with showers that cooled off the vines. Optimal conditions continued through the end of August resulting in grapes that were concentrated and well balanced. Great quality with slightly lower yields.
Early year. The high temperatures caused the plants to begin their vegetative growth phase 2 to 3 weeks earlier than normal. This moving up of the cycle, combined with the intense spring rains and the high temperatures, generated the “perfect storm” for the development of mildew. A dry summer accelerated the ripening process, so that the harvest was begun a week before the usual time. The resulting grape was very high quality. One of the shortest harvested and the smallest yields in the last 10 years.
