What the Critics say
'(100% mencia): Ruby-red. Explosively perfumed bouquet of fresh blackberry, mocha, smoke and incense. Pliant, expansive dark berry flavors show impressive freshness and energy, picking up dusty tannins with air. Becomes spicier on the back end, with the sweet blackberry and mocha qualities carrying through the very persistent finish. Give this some air if you plan on opening one any time soon.' (Nov11)
Clos Mogador was founded in 1979 by Rene Barbier. René is a direct descendent of a French line of winemakers whose origins can be traced back to the 1200s. Trained in the most presitgious winemaking schools of Bordeaux & Burgundy, he has also worked in acclaimed wineries such as Moueix, who are amongst other things the makers of Petrus. In 1979, he acquired his first vineyard in Priorat and started to make his first wine in the area: Clos Mogador.
