The flagship the 2007 Clos Mogador is made up of 40% Garnacha 20% Carinena 20% Syrah and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is purple/black-colored with a sensational bouquet of mineral truffle espresso black cherry blueberry and licorice. Dense and Reubenesque on the palate it has great concentration loads of savory fruit impeccable balance and several years of aging potential.

Explosively perfumed aromas of blackberry cherry-cola candied licorice and black cardamom with a smoky mineral undertone and a hint of fruitcake. Lush decadent dark fruit flavors show a liqueur-like density but don't come off as heavy thanks to slow-mounting minerality and a touch of spicy black pepper. There's nothing shy about this and while there's the ripeness and weight that I expect from this wine there's also a brightness that bodes well for aging.

Label

The prestigious Clos Mogador flagship release became Catalonia’s first officially recognized “Vi de Finca” or “estate wine”. Additionally it bears distinction as a D.O.Ca Priorat, which guarantees that all grapes used to make the wine have been sourced exclusively from a single vineyard for at least five years.

A proprietary blend of Grenache, Carignan, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, it bides its time in carefully selected French oak barrels. Clos Mogador is made with affection and dedication, attentively following the traditional artisan methods of the world’s best ‘Grands Cru’ wines.

Winery

Clos Mogador

The wines of Clos Mogador have become as famous as other mythical wines of the world such as Italy's Sassicaia and Bordeaux's Chateau Margaux. Located in Gratallops in the heart of the Priorat hills, the estate is owned by Rene Barbier, descendent of a renowned family of French winemakers and one of the founders of the Priorat revolution. He was the first of a group of pioneers who made the “New Priorats” and has worked successfully towards recovering the region’s unique terroir.

In 1979, Barbier purchased a small plot of vineyard in the village of Gratallops which he planted with Grenache and Carignan, along with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. This was the beginning of his Clos Mogador project. A few years later, he purchased a further 20 hectares in the guise of Manyetes (Vi de Vila de Gratallops) and Nelin (a white wine). Forever obsessed by terroir, Barbier strives to reveal the classic characteristics of this wine region and confesses that he has a weakness for Grenache.

The vineyard site for Clos Mogador is a vast amphitheater of crumbling slate, surrounded by mountains up to 1200 meters high, while the vineyard’s lower extremes are caressed by the Siurana River.
