Maius M Barranc de la Bruixa 2011, Priorat | Per’s Wine of the Month

There has been ups and downs for the Priorat wine region. It soared to international fame some fifteen years ago with a few producers almost achieving cult status. And cult prices. Then suddenly one heard less of them. Today many new producers have started and the style has developed to focus more on fruit and elegance than on power and muscle.

Maius M Barranc de la Bruixa 2011 Doq Priorat is a superb example of modern Priorat. Surprisingly light colour but the dominant grape is Grenache so this is natural, ripe fruit, quite full-bodied and southern character but not too much, very much Grenache character in the taste as well, full, with excellent slightly sweet-ripe fruit. A bit of an iron hand in a velvet glove. Very good southern-style wine. Recommended! 18 euros from the property. Maius is a young producer who made its first vintage in 2004.
