The wines from Cellers Clos Mogador are from the vines in an exceptional Priorat microclimate which covers less than 2,000 hectares. Clos Mogador is a vast amphitheatre of crumbling slate. The vines are surrounded by mountains up to 1.200 metres high. The vineyard’s which are lower extremes are lovingly caressed by the Siurana River and all vineyards are harvested by hand. Grenache, Carignan, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon bide their time in carefully selected French oak barrels and only reappear when the moment is right, full of promise and hidden joy. The few bottles of Clos Mogador are made with affection, attentively following in the ‘Grands Crus’ traditional artisan methods.
Clos Mogador is the great wine from René Barbier and one of the Priorat’s best. A wine of excellent quality and persistence, an authentic wine, faithfully conveying the personality of the terroir, with its characteristic aromas of Mediterranean undergrowth. A powerful, robust and complex wine, yet also silky and very elegant.
Pull The Cork on a bottle of Clos Mogador, sit back, relax and enjoy the moment. Salut!
