I love the 2015 Clos Martinet, which I find complex and elegant while keeping the Priorat rustic character found in the best vintages, like 2000. It's balanced, and the palate feels ethereal for the concentration it has. The tannins are abundant but very fine-grained, and there is a sense of harmony that is captivating. A great Clos Martinet. I had the chance to drink the 2000 a few days before I tasted this, and it remains one of the best years they have produced. 2015 is also among the best years.

Winemaker Sara Pérez isn’t an unalloyed fan of Cabernet Sauvignon in Priorat, 'but if I’m here and doing what I love', she acknowledges, 'it’s because my parents came here and planted Cabernet Sauvignon'. This deftly sewn, refined and limitlessly classy wine is a blend of Garnatxa and Carinenya - Pérez’s passion: 'when it’s very good it’s always better than the other grape varieties'. Smaller quantities of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are also in the blend. The Grenache component is whole-bunch fermented. The wine is aromatically subtle and fine-grained, with flower and spice notes, then delicate, poised and complex on the palate. Fig, plum and pomegranate flavours are lent gravity by rounded, wealthy tannins. - Decanter Magazine
