Wine Advocate 94 points - The 2010 Manyetes wears the ?Vi de Villa Gratallops?, village wine on the label, as it is from Carinena vineyards in the village of Gratallops. The bright purple-colored 2010 has a complex nose of wet slate, graphite and peat intermixed with blueberries, violets and licorice aromas in a very harmonious way. The palate is deliciously rustic, with polished tannins, great acidity, pure flavors and a very long aftertaste. Overall it?s a very pleasant, rustic, elegant red, which could be drunk now with powerful food or aged slowly in bottle. It represents good value for money. 7,000 bottles produced. Drink now-2025. (Feb 2014)

Manyetes is the name of a place in the village of Grattalops. With this Manyetes, Barbier has imposed a passionate challenge on this poor and too sunny soil, at the limit of the survival of the vines ... Only the influence of the Ebre river on the horizon, gives an occasional thin patch of moisture that allows the vines to survive. The result is a large concentration of the principal essence of Priorat. And in this corner close to suffocation, rises Rene Barbier, who resists an old barren and steep hillside, covered with slate and planted with Carignan. He wanted to bring some femininity with 25% of Grenache. The result is a surprising wine: the Carignan and Grenache combine to give the soil a mineral wine, feminine, pleasant and subtle ... A wine that Fernando Zamora Marin, professor of the Faculty of Enology in Tarragona and winemaker at Clos Mogador, describes as: “Manyetes is deep red, crowned with purple highlights. Its aroma is intense, complex and sophisticated. Initially, it evokes clear notes of blackcurrant, plum, fig and cocoa, all surrounded by memories of cinnamon and liquorice. When it breathes (in carafe!) we clearly distinguish the violet and deep balsamic and mineral aromas. In contrast, it is concentrated, creamy, rich and full of fruit. Then it invades the whole palate and fills it with intense sensations. The rich and ripe tannins line the palate with velvet. Its lingering aroma is remarkable. An extraordinary wine that will improve further over the next 10 years! This Manyetes is primarily a wine to be enjoyed with game (wild boar fillet, saddle of venison, partridge with cabbage, guinea fowl stew), but it also goes wonderfully with Catalan cuisine in its great diversity (rabbit with saffron rice, roast pork with orange, sauteed veal with olives and anchovy sauce, braised beef cheeks in Priorat, lentils with pork ribs.)
