Winemaker's Notes

#53 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

From looking at and tasting Salanques, you'd never know that it is a "second label" to Mas Doix. Its deep purple color speaks to how highly concentrated and extracted this wine is, and the floral aromas, black fruit and chalky minerality speak to the pedigree of the vineyards.

On the palate, the wine is completely balanced, with full body, good acid, ripe tannins, and a velvety mouthfeel.

Critical Acclaim

"The Salanques cuvee is the second wine of Celler Mas Doix, a barrel by barrel declassification from Mas Doix itself. The 2006 Salanques is a blend of 65% Garnacha, 15% Carinena, and the balance Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 14 months in French oak. It offers up an enticing nose of cedar, pencil lead, tar, licorice, and black cherry. Dense, layered, and pleasure-bent on the palate, this well balanced wine will provide pleasure over the next eight years."

"A plush texture carries rich flavors of brandied cherry, dark chocolate, cocoa and mountain herbs in this expressive red. The tannins are firm but well-integrated, and the finish is bright and juicy. Drink now through 2014. 1,000 cases imported. "
92 Points

"Bright ruby color. Finely etched dark berry and mineral scents are complicated by baking spices, anise and dried flowers. Firm and focused, with energetic blackberry and licorice flavors and a spicy quality emerging with air. This put on weight in the glass and finished with very good, sweet persistence. Drinkable right now. "
