Clos Mogador needs no introduction. Rene Barbier was a pupil of Jean-Claude Berrouet and is one of the 'founding fathers' in Priorat as part of the 'Gratallops group.' I met him for the first time at his home, located at the bottom of a never-ending winding dirt track and surrounded by vines. He was accompanied by his wife and energetic son, also named Rene and married to Sara Perez (see Mas Martinet.) Their 20-hectare dry farmed, vineyard is located on schistous slate and quartz soil (llicorella) and planted with 40% Garnacha (80-year-old vines) , 20% Carinena, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Syrah. The wine is raised in Nevers and Allier oak with minimal intervention.

Gorgeous, amplified aromas of wild berry, plum and fine herbs are crystal clear and magnetic. This beautiful Priorat is layered, smooth as glass and exemplary in every way. Flavors of mixed black fruits, cocoa, toast and schisty mineral finish in a swirl of chocolate, blackened toast, licorice and peppercorn.

An impressive blended red wine from Spain that is made primarily from Grenache and Carignan, but can also have some Merlot and Cabernet in there too! These special wines are full bodied, highly structured and age-worthy expressions that are packed with black cherry, plum, licorice, cocoa and gravelly minerality. Delicious!!
