93 Pts Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media
"Brilliant ruby-red. Smoky, spice-accented scents of blueberry, boysenberry and smoky Indian spices. Lush and creamy in texture, offering deeply pitched black and blue fruit flavors brightened by zesty minerality. The spicy note comes back on the finish, which is supple, broad and impressively persistent. Since there will be no Clos Erasmus this vintage, Daphne Glorian-Solomon has blended all of the estate's best juice into this bottling." (10/13)
93 Pts Luis Gutierrez - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"All the grapes were used to produce the second wine, Laurel, which in 2011 might be the bargain of the vintage from Priorat. The wine is a blend of 75% Garnacha, 20% Syrah and 5% Cabernet aged for 21 months, 50% in troncoconic wood vats from Taransaud (20 hl) and 50% in 2- to 4-year-old barrels. This is a serious, concentrated wine, quite restrained, with aromas of black fruit, black cherries and hints of violets intermixed with notes of tobacco and the wood perfectly integrated with the fruit. The palate has the mineral sensation provided by the llicorella, a sappiness lifted by the alcohol, which is moderate for such a warm vintage. There is incredible freshness and balance. This is the opportunity to get a mini-Erasmus at a much lower price. 16,000 bottles were produced, the largest production of Laurel ever. Drink now-2018.
Daphne Glorian didnât think the majority of her grapes from 2011 were up to the standard for her Clos Erasmus, so she didnât produce it in that warm vintage, the first time in 25 years. I also tasted a sample of the 2012, the next vintage for Erasmus, which will be bottled in April or March, where a small part of the wine was aged in clay amphorae. I was very impressed and look forward to the bottled wine."
"Clos Erasmus was born in an afternoon with the purchase of some old vines of Garnacha by Daphne Glorian, who happened to be in the area visiting some friends. Although she had no intention of purchasing such a plot or starting a winery, her friends (Alvaro Palacios and Rene Barbier) convinced her that amazing wines could be produced here if given the right attention. They were right. The wine was named after the philosopher Erasmus von Rotterdam as an allusion to his essay âIn Praise of Follyâ and an answer to all who dubbed the enterprise pure madness. What started as a âfunâ project soon became a very serious endeavor as the Priorat earned fame that surprised all of the growers by the rapidity of its ascent. Clos Erasmus is now considered one of the benchmarks of the region and has received consecutive 100 Point scores from the Wine Advocate, the only wine of Spain to ever have achieved such critical praise.
LAUREL (Daphne in Greek mythology) is the result of extreme triage in both vineyards and in the cellar for the grand vin of the property, Clos Erasmus. It is produced from the younger vines of the estate as well as a true declassification barrel by barrel of Clos Erasmus itself." - Importer
