The wine

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.

Clos i Terrasses

The secret behind Daphne Glorian’s ability to offer one of the most internationally renowned wines is due not only to her discovery of Priorat’s potential at the right time, but also to her knowledge of how to take proper care of the vineyards and the grapes, and being very particular when it comes to maturing wine in the bodega.
