In contrast, the flagship cuvee, the inky purple-colored 2006 La Creu Alta, a blend of 60% Carinena and 40% Garnacha from vines over 100 years of age, is not nearly as interesting. Dense and port-like (with 16.4% alcohol), it has plenty of power but comes off as compact and one-dimensional. Wine Advocate.June, 2009
There is no wonder that Mas Alta’s wines are so good given the consulting team behind them. Rhone legends Michel Tardieu (Tardieu-Laurent) and Philippe Cambie (a “consulting genius” according to Robert Parker, who awarded 100 points to 3 of Cambie’s 2007 Chateauneuf-du-Papes) are doing what they do best by creating Rhone varietal blends from vines up to 100 years old. The flagship wine, La Creu Alta, uses ancient 80 year old Grenache vines and 100 year old Carignan vines to produce this classical Priorat.Located in the traditional village of La Vilella Alta, these Priorat wines have consistently been awarded higher ratings year on year by the Wine Advocate.
