The 2009 Clos Mogador was tasted from a barrel sample. Asian spices, tapenade, incense, licorice, espresso, and blackberry aromas inform the nose of this structured, dense plush, powerful yet elegant offering. It is beautifully proportioned with exceptional length and incipient complexity. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and drink it from 2015 to 2029.

Jay S Miller, The Wine Advocate

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.
