Clos I Terrasses - Clos I Terrasses

Clos I Terrasses - Clos I Terrasses
The project was born in 1989, 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.

Clos I Terrasses

The most fashionable and sought after fine wines in Spain right now are from a handful of small growers in Priorat: Rene Berbier (Clos Mogador), Alvaro Palacios (Ermita) and Daphne Glorian (Clos I Terrasses) are leading the charge. The king grape here is Garnacha (Grenache), which is one of the few varieties that continues to be productive at 70+ years old, enabling old vine wines of great complexity that maintain their vivacity.

Clos Erasmus is the flagship wine from Daphne and winemaker Esther Nin and is truly extraordinary, with a globally unrivalled 97.8 point WA average over the last decade and a half. Less than 3000 bottles are made in each vintage.
