Clos Mogador

Rene Barbier Reserve / 2019 / 750mL

Tasting Note

VERY LIMITED!

Tasting Notes:

A near Perfect Priorat!

Displaying silky and beautiful flavours on a lively palate of very fine tannins on top of a confident mineraly backbone.

Clos Mogador Priorat is a blend of 49% de garnaxas, 25% cariñena, 16% syrah, 10% cabernet sauvignon.

The vineyard is a 20Ha amphitheater of crumbling slate.

The vines are at 350 metres and are surrounded by mountains up to 1,200 metres high and the vineyard’s lower extremes are adjacent to the Siurana River.

An example regarding quality, exigency and hard work with no concession and respect for nature and biodiversity.

Clos Mogador 2016 is the expression of the soil and grape in harmony with their environment and climate, all those elements then gathered by the hand of the human being, symbolising the true meaning of what Terroir is.

It is from the roots and thanks to their know-how that this family has been able to extract the personality and greatness of this unique vineyard.

Those who will be patient enough to let it age will be able to discover how the earthy character and roughness of those arid lands can also reveal silk and beauty.

About Clos Mogador:

René Barbier Jr. took us on a rollercoaster tour of the moonscape that is Priorat in his ancient family van (he has 4 children). All of his vineyards are easy to find as his are the only patches of green to be seen. Clos Mogador, like most of their neighbours are organic, use biodynamic principles (and used to use horses to plough this seems to be standard here!!!) 

Clos Mogador is different because they are trying to see if they can accentuate terroir by leaving the soil alone. No more ploughing! Nothing heavier than boots on his vineyards.

The vineyards have been seeded with indigenous ground cover. Rene has replanted the area with trees to encourage insect and bird life and is experimenting with co-planting vines and trees which would have been common 100 years ago.

So far the results are inconclusive but to me the wines seem to be getting finer and more complex (although this could also be due to the reducing Cabernet content-now down to just 10%).

René is also playing with very low sulphur levels but refuses to expose the wines to the various maladies that this can frequently imply.
