The estate's flagship wine, the Clos Martinet shows a dark ruby/purple color and dark fruit aromas together with graphite and espresso. Both the nose and the palate are exquisitely complex and satisfying. The Clos Martinet wines are classic 'new wave' Priorat, with very impressive concentration and massive fruit. At the same time they have great acidity and those lovely mineral, spicy flavors that are so distinctive and unique to the the best wines of the region.

Wine AdvocateThe 2003 Clos Martinet ratchets it up to another level. Opaque purple in color, it has an expressive nose of vanilla, scorched earth, plums, black cherries, and blueberries. Medium to full-bodied, on the palate it is nearly seamless with light, ripe and well integrated tannin. The finish is long and pure. Give this elegant Priorat 1-3 additional years of bottle age and drink it over the following 10.

Wine SpectatorPlum, garrigue and coffee notes mingle in this solid red. Not polished, but expressive, with enough structure to match with food. Drink now through 2011.
