Martinet Bru is an absolute reference point in the Priorat, one of those wines that transports us to the countryside where its grapes come from, Mas Torrent, a really beautiful estate with slate-covered lands bordering on the Montsant DO. Year after year it offers wines which are intense yet fresh, wines that combine the loveliness of the Montsant reds with that strong character of the Priorats.
What does this wine taste like?
Its intense Picota cherry colour precedes a nose replete with aromas of undergrowth and liquorice, cherries in liqueur and spices. Strong mineral, blue flower and blackberry notes complete a captivating aromatic display. On the palate it's intense and flavoursome but its sweet tannins and very well-restrained acidity make of it overall a wine that flows harmoniously, conferring freshness and elegance on our senses; understated toasty touches from the oak eventually emerge.

Always reliable, good value-for-money Priorat
Mas Martinet is one of the leading wine producers in the Priorat. I have never ever had a bottle from them that I was not satisfied with. Martinet Bru is their entry-level offering. It is a very good wine, consistently so vintage after vintage. Whereas the other wines from this producer are for putting away in the cellar and ten taking up for special occasions some years later, Martinet Bru is reasonably priced so that it can go with the Sunday dinner or just on its own in any week of the year. You can drink it as it is released, but it will hold up well in the cellar for several years.
Top entry-level Priorat
If you want value for money in a Priorat wine, go for Martinet Bru. This wine is smooth and easy to drink, yet has full flavour, fruit and a considerable complexity. It is what I serve to friends who are not (yet) sworn friends of Priorat reds. It is ready to drink now and will hold up for a few years in the cellar (but it won't last that long for me).
Great value wine
Martinet Bru is made in a very traditional way and having visited the Winery it easy to understand why it is so good.I am not a connoisseur of wine but this ticks every box for me
incredible good value
super garnacha/syrah, jammy and complex,cherries and a hint of tobacco,rapsberries,plum and chocolate,lovely viscosity and long spicy finish,i will be buying many more soon.
Good value Priorat
Lovely fruit well integrated with the wood. This is a delightful wine drinking well now but could use some more time in the Celler. Very good value for money Priorat.
The must ferments in oak and afterwards continues to rest and round off for a long period in barrel too. It's bottled without clarifying or filtering in order to respect fully its essence, and it proves honest and true right from the start.

Although there was no tradition of winemaking in past generations, Josep Lluís Pérez and his family (Pérez Ovejero) established themselves in the Priorat in 1981 and, along with René Barbier senior, Carles Pastrana (Costers del Siurana), Dafne Glorian (Clos i Terrasses) and (Álvaro Palacios), one of the Priorat’s leading experts, they are held responsible for having brought revolutionary changes to this small denomination in Tarragona, now much admired all over the world.
