Description

[Minimum Order 6x75cl]

The 2010 Clos Erasmus, a blend of 75% Garnacha and 25% Syrah from different vineyards in the village of Gratallops on schist (llicorella) soils, fermented in open-top oak vats and aged for 20 months in French oak (60% new) barriques (228 liters) all of it from Taransaud, was finally bottled and what I see from the bottle is really superb. The nose is closed when recently opened, so try to give it plenty of air so that the beautiful floral notes unfurl in your glass. There are showy, ripe aromas, of bright black and red cherry notes and even some reminiscences of blood orange with imperceptible oak. The texture is silky with a lacy filigree, soft and sophisticated but with an earthy, call it rustic if you want, side that makes it very Priorat. There is an incredible level of tension and polishing in the tannins, they are extremely fine-grained. Fresh and mineral. I’ve drunk this wine a number of times and it just seems to be getting better and better; one of the most elegant and balanced Erasmus ever. Drink now-2025. 97pts - Luis Guttierez, Wine Advocate #211, Feb. '14
