Characteristics of Clos Dominic Vinyes Altes Selecció Miriam
Clos Dominic Vinyes Altes Selecció Miriam is a barrel-aged red wine made with the Cariñena variety in the D.O.Q. Priorat (Catalonia) by Clos Dominic.
The Castillo-Bairaguet husband-wife team is what created Clos Dominic, a family project that is small but well-known around the world for their commitment to quality. Each of their wines are made through a great respect for the terroir, and they work in a way that is sustainable and with very little intervention. In the winery, they strive to create the minerality and depth that is typical of great Priorat wines.
Clos Dominic Vinyes Altes Selecció Miriam comes from one of the winery’s best assets, “La Tena”. A 7 hectare plot in the village of Porrera (Tarragona) with hundred-year-old vines planted on licorella soil, lying about 450 metres above sea level. This is an exceptional terroir with exceptional strains, cultivated using sustainable agriculture, taking into account the natural cycles of the vineyard and respecting the natural environment. The harvest is carried out manually when the grapes reach optimum ripeness.
In the winery, Clos Dominic Vinyes Altes Selecció Miriam ferments with native yeasts. Once the wine is made, it is left to age in one new, medium roasted French oak barrel for 18 months. Finally, it is bottled without using additives for clarification.
Clos Dominic Vinyes Altes Selecció Miriam is a red wine that reveals the depth and minerality that is typical of great Priorat wines. A very elegant concentration of flavours and aromas.

Clos Dominic Vinyes Altes Selecció Miriam 2016 is a smooth red wine with intense aromas of black fruits, notes of liquorice and mineral touches. On the palate it is deep, structured and complex. It is elegant and voluminous with a great aging potential.
SightDeep cherry red colour with maroon edges. Bright wine with a medium-high robe. Glyceric tear that stains the glass.NoseElegant and complex wine. Once opened, notes of very ripe fruit, almost jam, are released along with subtle and fragrant flowers (violets), spices and well integrated soft toasted aromas which form a good nose. The touches of mountain herbs give it a break. All these notes are noticed on an extraordinary background of sweet spices (vanilla) and minerals (graphite and the slate typical of the Priorat).TasteVery mineral and elegant wine. After a very good first plunge, the wine shows a very balanced, velvety and delicious mid palate. The notes of fruit and toasted are displayed on a very mineral background, typical of Priorat wines. Tannins are present but they provide a very nice touch (they still need to finish polishing). Great and very persistent finish that leaves an endless minerality, with lots of fruit and spices.
A very good wine that can already be drunk or stored still for a long time, as it becomes still better.
Priorat is craftsmanship and tradition, old and robust vines that are grown and born deep inside the province of Tarragona. They are grown on slopes that are sleety with low fertility and difficult to grow in. In Priorat they produce great red wines of an excellent quality, a maroon colour, robust, dense and rich flavour, intense aromas and sometimes there are reflections present of minerals from the soils.
