Meticulously harvested, this Priorat white wine was fermented in new French oak barrels, in which it also was gently aged for 6 months.

The white wine Clos Dominic Blanc has a bright, clean yellow colour.
First thing we notice is a subdued, intriguing earthiness, Priorat's trademark, nuanced by ever-growing aromas of citrus, peach and flowers. As it opens, Clos Dominic Blanc segues into aromas of spices, aniseed and menthol. Enchanting.
Complex, layered and with plenty of room for growth, this wine by Clos Dominic has a savory, dense passage through the palate. Neither oversweet nor syrupy, it has an exceptional acidity and a steely backbone. Spices are subdued, and fruit and minerality reign supreme. Precise and focused, with a very long finish and a deeply earthy remembrance.
