Review

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.

Clos Mogador is, in addition, one of the few wines recognised as Grand Cru in the region, a Vi de Finca Qualificada (Qualified Estate Wine), to use the denomination's official term. It's made from four varieties (mainly Garnacha and Cariñena, with some added Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah), artisan-crafted, a wine for cellaring that always benefits from several years in bottle. A great wine to enjoy at a slow pace.

Excelente

Como siempre, excelente. Uno de los mejores vinos de priorato. Un clasico.

Buena calidad pero necesita madurar

Abierto y decantado unas 2h antes de beberlo. Aromas complejos de frutos del bosque, además de apreciarse aromas de la madera. Sorprende la alta acidez, aunque con el tiempo se terminará de redondear. Excelente vino que mejorará con los años en buen cuidado.

Balsámico. Más negro que rojo.Crianza discreta.Fruta por encima de momento.Me he arrepentido de abrirlo tan pronto.Al final ganas unas cosas y pierdes otras.Aun así gran vino.

Fantástico!

Valor seguro del Priorat, que decir . . . Pocas presentaciones hacen falta para valorar un vino mítico de la zona. Muy bueno!!

Herausragender Priorat!

Der Clos Mogador zählt zu meinen absoluten Rotwein Favoriten. Ein sehr voluminöser, eleganter, runder Priorat mit sehr ausgeglichenen Tanninen. Diesen Jahrgang 2015 kann man sowohl sofort trinken oder zunächst für ein paar Jahre einlagern. Einfach nur herausragend!

Clos Mogador

René Barbier arrived in Priorat, from a well-known family of French vine-growers, when the wines of this region were totally unknown. He and a group of friends, including names now notably famous such as Josep Lluís Pérez (Mas Martinet Viticultors), Carles Pastrana (Costers del Siurana), Dafne Glorian (Clos i Terrasses) and, somewhat later, Álvaro Palacios (Álvaro Palacios), were the real architects of the recovery of this small appellation in inland Tarragona, greatly admir...
