Maius DOQ Priorat
Maius DOQ Priorat is located in the upper part of the DOQ Priorat at approx. 550 m above sea level and the 12 hectare vineyard is located on the typical "licorella" (slate) rich mineral composition. The microclimate is very dry and warm, but due to the altitude it is clearly cooler at night. The vines have a very low yield due to the climate but also the vision of the Josep Gomez. Due to the inhospitable area, industrialization of the wine-growing and harvesting is not possible, Josep and his team work the land in an artisanal way. The result is very impressive, with two great wines with unprecedented price / quality for a wine from the Priorat. The wines have a lot of character but at the same time a lively freshness, balance and elegance.
In the December 2018 edition of Perswijn they tasted 100 and Priorat wines and received the Maius Classichet predicate "SELECT" and the Maius wines have beaten many much more expensive Priorat wines.
