Robert Parker - 93 See more...
This excellent value is a noteworthy introduction to the style of Clos Erasmus. The 2002 Clos Erasmus is undeniably one of the finest Priorats of the vintage. A blend of 75% Grenache and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, aged in 100% new Radoux barrels, it boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with noble notes of crushed rock-like steeliness, elegance, precision, power, and intensity. There is a layered mouthfeel, remarkable concentration for a 2002, and fine length as well as overall balance. This beauty is best consumed during its first 10-15 years of life given the vintage.

From Daphne Glorian, among the region's original new wavers, Clos Erasmus is simply one of the best, most typical Priorat wines out there. And while the '02 may not rank as a classic, it's still superb. Aromas of graphite, mineral and licorice dominate, backed by layered cherry, plum and earth notes. From four small vineyards around the town of Gratallops. About 450 cases made. Imported by European Cellars.
