Description

René Barbier led the original Priorat movement, proving that exciting and unique fine wines could be made in this forgotten corner of Spanish Catalonia. At Clos Mogador, he nursed back to life abandoned old vineyards planted on steep schist hillsides, where the ancient Grenache and Carignan vines had learnt to struggle against the aridity by sending roots 25 metres down in search of water and nutrients, yielding less than 10 hectolitres per hectare of intense, concentrated and super complex juice. The estate became firmly established as the number one address in the appellation, with a bulging press book to back this claim. But Clos Mogador is much more, a thriving ecosystem and a celebration of biodiversity, a blueprint for living "terroir." Robert Parker once said of Clos Mogador that the wines are "stunning examples of what Spain can produce but so rarely does".

The 2015 Clos Mogador is 45% Garnacha, 29% Cariñena, 16% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from the vineyard that names the wine (and the winery), planted on llicorella slate soils at 350 meters in altitude. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and had a 35- to 45-day maceration, followed oak aging in 300-liter barrels and 2,000-liter foudres for at least 18 months. Soft tannins, yet highly concentrated with a smaller percentage of Cabernet than previous vintages making for a harmonious palate and a velvety texture with great seriousness. This will develop at a very slow pace in bottle.
