"The 2015 Clos Erasmus has a similar level of purity to the 2013, yet is a riper, sexier wine that has an incredible voluptuousness and depth on the palate that’s hard to believe. Kirsch, blackberries, cassis, graphite, liquid rock, dusty earth, and violet characteristics all emerge from this sensational, full-bodied, expansive Priorat that has sweet tannin and a huge finish. While it’s a very different wine than the 2013, it’s just as perfect. The 2015 is 75% Garnacha and 25% Syrah, aged 20 months in 40% new French Taransaud barrels, with 5% in clay amphorae. There are roughly 250 cases produced and it’s a heavenly, singular wine to drink over the coming 15-20+ years. Hats off to winemaker Daphne Glorian!"
It is all about dense fruit, exotic spice and licorella minerality, with a freshness and elegance are truly singular, even among the top wines of the appellation. Very expressive and complex nose that displays elegant aromas of ripe dark cherries, dark plums, liquorice, clove and mineral notes. It is full-bodied with supple tannins, concentrated fruit and nervy acidity. Finishes extremely long and complex.
