Producer
One of the oldest grape-growing families in the Priorat, the Sangenis family had historically sold the entirety of their production to the local co-op until 1995 when they formed a new company, Mas d’en Compte, to bottle wine under their own name. Now, Joan Sangenis manages the estate and makes the wines and has converted the entire estate away from chemical pesticides and herbicides. Mas d'En Compte is situated in Priorat, which is in the rugged hills of Northern Spain in Spanish Catalonia, near Barcelona. This region is now considered one of the best terroirs in the world for the production of wines based around Garnatxa (Garnacha) and Carinena (Carignan). In a region where almost everyone has a few vines over 50 years old, the Sangenis family’s entire vineyard is practically this old. The grapes for Planots are selected from a single vineyard with 100+ year old vines of Garnacha and Carignan. Also, they are one of the few holders of extremely old vine white Grenache, a varietal that many properties have ripped out. This old vine material means that yields are extremely low and concentration is quite high.
