Reviews for 2011 Mas Igneus Barranc dels Closos Blanc

90 Points Wine Enthusiast

This plush white offers broad flavors of pear, almond, candied ginger, and orange peel. The generous texture is supported as much by tannins as acidity. This distinctive wine would match well with many meat dishes. Drink now through 2014. 3,175 cases made T. Matthews, 8/31/13

Mostly neutral aromas include a note of peach and citrus, and a hint of butterscotch. The body is full and the texture is good, while the overall balance is on the money. Creamy flavors of vanilla, coconut cake, toffee, and baked apple finish similarly, with some heat and burn. M.Schachner, 12/31/13

The 2011 Barranc del Closes is a blend of 50% Macabeu, 30% Garnacha Blanca, 15% Pedro Ximenez and 5% Muscat grown on slate soils (llicorella) and fermented in stainless steel without seeing any oak. It has a clean, intense bouquet of lime, fresh pineapple and fresh grapefruit with a faint hint of spice. The palate is well-balanced with a waxy-textured entry. There is fine acidity here, with a potent thread of lemongrass imparting vigour and intensity. This is a very fine entry-level white. Drink now-2017. N. Martin, 4/1/12

The scent of gunpowder, more common in Sancerre than Priorat, emerges out of this stony blend of garnacha blanca (50%) with macabeo, pedro ximenez and a few drops of muscat. It’s a cool white, alive with acidity that points up its almond flavor and that firm minerality. The perfect bottle for a fish curry.
