Laurel 2016
Front and back

Review:

Daphne Glorian was one of the five pioneers and instigators of the rediscovery and revival of the Priorat, in those bygone years of the 1980s. She is better known in the United States than in Spain; and there she exports the best part of the scant production of Clos Erasmus and Laurel, her only two wines. Not without good reason; her husband, Eric Salomon, is one of the main USA importers, and so it should come as no surprise that the back labels of both wines appear in English and bear the stamp of European Cellars.

Clos Erasmus was one of the first Spanish wines to obtain 100 Parker points, in two consecutive years, 2004 and 2005, an exceptionally rich and complex wine, with boundless fruit and profound minerality. Laurel is her second wine, made using the wine from barrels not accepted for the winery’s crown jewel, along with some batches from younger vines. Despite the fact that the price of Laurel is four times less than that of Clos Erasmus, Daphne Glorian shows them both the same interest and passion.

One of the most finely crafted and succulent Priorat wines in its price range that you can come across today. Mature, fruit-forward and mysterious; delightfully classic yet paradoxically not widely known.

Full bodied fruity wine as you expect from the Priorat. Not as good as the 2015 which was outstanding but still a big hitter.

Love this wine which promises great drinking in two to three years more in the bottle. Although still closed, has great nose and long aftertaste so it requires some patience to appreciate fully

Das zart hingehauchte, kaum erkennbare Lorbeerblatt auf dem Etikett von Daphne Glorians „Laurel“ ist eine Ansage. Es signalisiert zum einen allergrößtes Selbstbewusstsein, was den Inhalt betrifft; gleichzeitig wird der Blick (Lorbeerblatt = Laurel = Daphne) auf die „Weinmacherin“ Daphne Glorian gelenkt. Diese zählt als „Clos-Generation“ zur Mitbegründerin des modernen Priorats, ohne die es das Priorat-Wunder so nicht gegeben hätte. Allerdings: Philosophie und Weine haben sich im Priorat deutlich weiterentwickelt; u.a. auch durch Ester Nin, die in Daphne Glorians Keller den Zauberstab führt, auch unter Einsatz von Holzfuder, Betonei und Amphoren für den „Zweitwein“ Laurel, der „Erstweintraum“ so mancher Kollegen sein dürfte. Der aktuelle Jahrgang 2016 war wetterbedingt eher herausfordernd. Umso bemerkenswerter die Vielfalt der Eindrücke schon jetzt im noch jugendlichen „Laurel“. Dicht und konzentriert mit interessantem Spiel in der Nase; im Mund außergewöhnliche Frische und Säure, Brombeere, Kakao und Kräuter, mineralische Noten, ächzende Tannine, noch unrund. Eine spannungsvolle Herausforderung.
