Clos Erasmus er skabt af amerikaneren Daphne Glorian og har opnået kultstatus som ingen anden i Priorat. Daphne købte sammen med Rene Barbier og 2 andre, 17 terrasser i det ukendte område i 1988, med henblik på at lave en moderne vin her. Det endte med at blive 5 forskellige vine, deri blandt Clos Erasmus og Clos Mogador. I dag hedder firmaet Clos i Terrasses og har været biodynamisk siden 00'erne.

Robert Parker
After no 2011 was produced, the 2012 Clos Erasmus comes with renewed energy, a much fresher approach and a more transparent wine while keeping the slate typicity of Gratallops even in a tiny-yielding vintage. Part of the wine aged in 700-liter clay amphorae and the rest in Burgundy barrels that added a spicy patina to the nose, yet very much respected the wet slate character of the vintage. Contrary to previous vintages, the core of fruit is red rather than black; the 2013 that I tasted (not in bottle) followed pretty much this same direction. The palate shows power, elegance and a special mineral savoriness akin to licking stones. There is more Garnacha in the blend (there's only 15% Syrah) which gives a Mediterranean juiciness. A new life for Erasmus, very much recognizable as Priorat, Gratallops and Erasmus, but with a more elegant haircut. Only 2,000 bottles produced.
