Get to Know This Product
"Clos Martinet is made from grapes which every year come from the plots that belong to our Mas d’en Martinet vineyard situated on the lands that form Gratallops village wines. The slate soil and different exposition of the sloping vineyards grant the wine its own character year after year.
"The vineyards in greater part consist of the local varieties: Red Grenache, Carignan and Downy Grenache as we are
convinced that they express the character of Priorat the best. However, we also maintain Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet as homage to the great pioneers like Josep Lluís Pérez.
"In the course of years we have been adding more and more local varieties, we work with indigenous yeast slowly abandoning the ideas that motivated us at the beginning, the technical knowledge of the grapes and wine, in favour of and dialogue with nature to be able to express the Clos Martinet vineyard.
2020 is a vintage with a great sense of maturity, rather than concentration, which has to do with the sustained heat and the joy of the plant and its sugars in full production (lots of leaf and little grain). The harvest was very hard because we harvested just stems with 3 grapes, and we need to assess that we could not throw it on the ground because if we threw it on the ground, we wouldn't
harvest anything at all. The effort was sublime. Sublime, from the whole team, for everyone. And with this effort we achieved 14% of the production, mainly concentrated in the four estates: Clos Martinet, Escurçons and Pesseroles red and white. And so, we lost only 50% of Clos Martinet, 60% of Escurçons and 70% of Pesseroles."
