The wine

Les Crestes is Mas Doix's most immediate red wine, an expressive and tasty wine that despite its youth does not give up the genuine character of Priorat. It is made from young vines (20 years) mostly of Grenache, grown on slate slopes at about 400 meters altitude. The yields are around one kilo per strain despite the young age of the vineyard, such is the crudeness of the Prioratian terroir. 8 months in second-year French oak barrels give life to about 50,000 bottles of a wine of violet reflections and aroma of red fruit and dried herbs, mouth full of tasty fruit and great balance.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The young and tender red 2019 Les Crestes is an approachable blend of 80% Garnacha and 10% each Cariñena and Syrah. It has ripe black fruit and licorice aromas and is Mediterranean, warm and comforting. It fermented with neutral yeasts in stainless steel and matured in second use French oak barrels for eight months. But the oaking is very light, and the wood feels very integrated, coming through as quite fruit-driven. They produced 40,000 bottles of this wine. It was bottled in July 2020.
