The 2010 Salanques is a blend of 65% Garnacha and 25% Carinena from old vines and 10% young-vine Syrah aged for 14 months in 50/50 new and used French oak barrels. The nose has floral and fruit aromas with the oak adding just a spicy touch and the slate soil taking the leading role. The palate is extremely tasty, with pungent aromas and flavors that are long and persistent with the help of the well-integrated alcohol, finishing with a mineral taste that makes it almost salty. A great Salanques and quite good price for this quality in Priorat. 18,000 bottles were produced. Drink now-2022. 2010 seems like a very successful year for the wines of Mas Doix which are powerful and reflect their origin but show very good balance. The old vine cuvee is a really profound Priora

Inky ruby. Deep, powerful cherry and dark berry scents are complicated by suggestions of licorice and pipe tabacco. Concentrated blueberry and plum compote flavors pick up a roasted coffee quality with air, along with a hint of bitter chocolate. This muscular but surprisingly energetic wine finishes smoky, spicy and long, with an echo of candied blue fruits.
