Clos I Terrasses Laurel, magnum
- Catalonia, Spain
The Laurel - the second, younger vine wine from Clos I Terrasses - is a fabulous wine in its own right. The warm soils of Gratallops and a blend of mostly Grenache and a little Syrah (with decreasing amounts of Cabernet) means we’ve previously called it “a Latin-tinged Chateauneuf-du-Pape.”
It has scored 95 points in its last two vintages and is looking like another sure thing in 2016. The final blend has yet to be rated by the Wine Advocate but Luis Gutiérrez stated “I tasted some seven different components of the 2016 Laurel that also looked to be phenomenal!”. There is every chance this could be the highest scoring, best ever Laurel.
