Clos i Terrasses Laurel 2018

13% abv

Vol- 75cl

Sometimes you can’t turn down an opportunity to work with a producer from a specific area, despite already being generously stocked with wines from that area. It is fair to say that Clos I Terrasses fall into that category in Priorat. Top wine Clos Erasmus, is one of the benchmarks of the area, having consecutively scored a perfect 100 with the Wine Advocate, the only Spanish wine ever to have done so. The project was born in 1989, mainly, it seems, from being friends with a couple of local chancers, named Alvaro Palacios and Rene Barbier, who persuaded the owner, Daphne Glorian, that some old Garnacha vines on the local licorella (schist) soils might just make a decent bottle of wine. The first 10 vintages were made at Barbier’s Clos Mogador until Daphne purchased an old cellar from Palacios. The wines have gone from strength to strength, mixing the characteristic dense fruit, exotic spice and licorella minerality with a freshness and elegance that sets the wine apart from many of this grand appellation. The production of the biodynamic Clos Erasmus, made from 70% Garnacha and 30% Syrah, is around 3,000 bottles. It is sourced from 3 vineyards in Gratallops: Escalas (1.1 hectare), Aubagues (2.4 hectares), Socarrats (3.5 hectares). Due to the extreme hand selection of the grapes for Clos Erasmus, the nurturing of younger vines and certain barrels being declassified, the winery is able to produce a second wine, Laurel.
