Product Description
Details

The Clos Dominic family winery presents the 2020 vintage of Clos Dominic Blanc, a ridiculously scarce Spanish white wine from Priorat.

A unicorn - the only white wine produced by Clos Dominic - among unicorns - Priorat white wines themselves - it is made from a uncompromisingly indigenous blend of White Grenache, coming from centenary vineyards, Picapoll and Pedro Ximénez.

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

We suggest that you drink Clos Dominic Blanc 2020 at a temperature slightly above the usual white wine serving temperature.

Extremely limited production. This could be your only chance to buy this white wine fermented in oak.

Appearance

The white wine Clos Dominic Blanc is bright yellow with some amber and steely reflections.

Nose

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, this blend of White Grenache, Pedro Ximénez and Picapoll Blanc segues into aromas of spices, aniseed, petrol and menthol. Spellbinding.

Palate

Complex, layered and with plenty of room for growth, this wine from bodega 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 and petrol-like remembrance.

Our personal opinion

A rare jewel, Clos Dominic Blanc 2020 proves that Priorat white wines can be as good - perhaps even better - as the red ones.

Astounding white wine. Deeply mineral and self-assured, with a personality that combines a Riesling-like minerality with a Mediterranean splendor.
