Mas Doix, 1902 Centenary Carignan, Gran Vinya Classificada 2017

RRP £211

An intense, savoury nose with liquorice and a bit of tar. It’s fresh but big-boned, even massive, but full of life, with dark-spectrum fruit (damson and sloe) and fine violet perfume. This is from 115-year-old vines in a low-yielding vintage; it’s concentrated and intense but with a kind of heavy-browed elegance that gives it real presence. The full, ripe tannins and sharp acidity bespeak a long life ahead.
