Review

When the expertise of two families with deep Priorat roots, the Pérez and Barbiers, is united and this is combined with a love for the land and the readiness to cherish its fruits felt by two people like Sara Pérez and René Barbier, the end result is a wine that's unpretentious but exciting.

Sara and René are a knowledgeable and approachable couple, whose main aspiration as they go through life is to leave an emotional mark, not a material one, and with this aim in mind they devote themselves to looking after their own environment, and that of those they meet along the way, with complete sincerity and affection. In favour of the ecosystem, they moved over to organic cultivation years ago and viewed sustainability as a non-negotiable goal, reducing waste to the minimum, employing lower-energy materials and restructuring water and electricity consumption. In their dealings with others, they are always kind, considerate and smiling, delighted to chat about wine at any time.

If we add to two such special individuals as René and Sara the infallible combination of Garnacha and granite, it's easily understood why Montsant wine attains a new dimension in every bottle of Dido. The varietal's pleasant qualities meld extremely well with the terroir's genuine merits, producing for us a clean-cut, vibrant wine which has a translucent look in the glass, as a direct consequence of a moderate maceration. On the nose, blue and red flowers enhance hints of wild strawberries and orange peel. Touches of stone fruit emerge, which only great Garnachas are capable of delivering, accompanied by refreshing touches of Morello cherries. On the palate it's transparent and fluid; juicy to just the right extent, fruity but not overly so, and very easy to appreciate. Pure pleasure, of the sort some call femininity while many others call elegance.

Me pareció Intenso y bastante tánico. Aromas a Frutos rojos.

Me pareció Intenso y bastante tánico. Aromas. A frutos rojos. Al final te dejaba un buen bouquet en boca y persistente

Un gran vino ecológico.

De los pocos vinos ecológicos que he probado este es sin duda uno de los mejores. Sobre todo mucho sabor a fruta fresca y algún toque de mineralidad.

Priorat atypique

Vin atypique, à la robe assez claire. On pense plus à un Bourgogne qu'à un Priorat. Le nez est agréable et fruité. La bouche est un peu austère. Il faut sans doute attendre un peu pour lui laisser trouver son équilibre.

La mano de René

su calidad con el precio no es escepcional pero el vino si. Supongo que con paladares muy entrenados no se debe notar pero a mi me encantó el vino, para tomar solo o acompañado. esta cuidado hasta el más mínimo detalle...

Venus "La Universal"

"La Universal" is the small 4-hectare estate located in the Falset district where two weighty names in the wine world have come together: René Barbier (he is the 4th generation, with more than 20 years of experience in the family-run winery of Clos Mogador) and his wife, the assiduous oenologist Sara Pérez, daughter of Josep Lluís Pérez (Mas Martinet Viticultors). Under the Montsant D.O, the couple have put together a joint project there, which is characterised by its adheren...
