Review

Artigas is the most affordable of the great Mas Alta wines. It's made mostly from Garnacha grapes (60%), although there's also some Cariñena (25%) and a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 16 months in French oak barrels, a third of which are new, another third used for one wine and a third for two wines. Its Priorat personality is evident, yet certain Cabernet notes might cause slight hesitation at first. Let it breathe a bit and its intensity will amaze you, as well as the contrast between its powerfulness, maturity and density, and the refreshing, citrus quality of its fruitiness (black cherry, plum). Artigas is sweet and balsamic, while at the same time earthy and mineral too. Undoubtedly, an excellent wine, with great expressiveness, that extends a warm and sincere invitation to experience the Priorat's typicity.

Vino excelente

Al igual que Els Pics, de la misma bodega, es uno de mis vinos favoritos. Excelente sabor a fruta madura, intenso pero equilibrado. Muy recomendable!!

Tipico

Classico Ribera sebbene ancora giovane .Frutti rossi con un potenza in bocca abbastanza equilibrata. Darà il suo meglio fra qualche anno

Frisch, weich und fruchtig. Probieren lohnt sich!

Plötzlich lohnt es sich wieder, einen Blick auf die Weine von „ Mas Alta“ zu werfen. Erst 1999 etabliert, schien sich zwischenzeitlich doch etwas Staub angesammelt zu haben. Beim Entstauben hat es der Chefönologe und technische Leiter „Bixente Oçafrain“ allerdings nicht belassen. Erkennbar ist: Eine überfällige Priorat-Ausrichtung im Weinberg und im Keller; sensible Anpassung priorat-inadäquater Cuvées; Entwicklung neuer Weine (herausragend der „Solana Alta“; drei(!) weitere starten 2020); endlich eine ansprechende Optik. Bestes Beispiel: der „Artigas 2016“. Benannt nach dem uralten Flurnamen seiner Parzellen (Les Artigues = für die landwirtschaftliche Nutzung vorbereitetes Brachland), bekam er symbolhaft eine Brennnessel auf das neue Etikett. Die Cuvée besteht 2016 aus 60:30:10 Garnatxa:Carinyena:CS. Vergoren in Beton mit weinbergeigenen Hefen und nur teilweise entrappt, danach 16 Monate in gebrauchten Fässern ausgebaut. Holz und Schwere sind weg. Der „Artigas 2016“ ist frisch, weich und fruchtig, sehr beerig, fast süßlich, würzig, mineralisch, lang und anschmiegsam. Probieren lohnt sich.

Un gran vino

Un vino con un sabor intenso pero muy suave en su paso por boca. Un muy buen ejemplo de los grandes vinos del Priorato

Bodegas Mas Alta

Bodegas Mas Alta

Mas Alta was founded in the village of La Vilella Alta at the end of the nineties (1999) by two Belgian families (Lambrecht and Vanhoutte), with the technical assistance of Michel Tardieu, the eminent French oenologist. They were neither the first nor will they be the last to come over from other countries and establish themselves in this highly-esteemed Catalan region, enthralled by the exceptional nature of this terroir. Although typically Priorat, Mas Alta wines have alway...
