This time there were two vintages of the top-of-the-range red to taste, as the 2014 is almost finished and the 2015 Clos Mogador will be released soon. In this warmer vintage, there is a little more Cariñena in the blend, with the final breakdown something like 45% Garnacha, 29% Cariñena, 16% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. This had the same vinification and aging as the 2014: fermentation with indigenous yeasts and a 35- to 45-day maceration, followed by an élevage in 300-liter barrels and 2,000-liter foudres that lasted 18 months. 2015 is a rounder and easier year than 2014, and it feels a little riper, supple but with good freshness. It's clean and precise with nicely integrated oak. This was an easy vintage for the winery, and the wines are easy to understand and more approachable early on. 31,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2017.

Clos Mogador

Clos Mogador

Situated in the wine region of Priorat, on the wild hills above Tarragona and not far from Spain’s north-eastern coast, Clos Mogador was created in the 1980s by René Barbier. Formed in Burgundy and then at the University of Bordeaux, he then trained in many estates and châteaux across France, including Château Pétrus. The vineyards of Clos Mogador are situated on terraces on the hills close to the village of Gratallops and benefit from an exceptional schist soil. With the help of his knowledge as well as with the use of modern techniques, René Barbier takes care of every detail. He also favours biodiversity by planting fruit, almond and olive trees as well as flowers amongst the vineyards. Considered an eccentric, he insisted and set himself further apart from the other local producers, particularly with his grape selection, his use of a century old vertical press that he recovered from an old cellar, as well as his use of wood or cement vats rather than stainless steel. Vinification takes place is open wooden vats and the wines are not filtered. The end results are superb which have given Clos Mogador an international and cult following. ...
Catalonia

Catalonia

Situated on the Mediterranean coast, the Cataluña region is one of Spain’s most fascinating provinces, producing some of the most sought-after wines in the world. Stretching from the Pyrenees all the way to the border to the north with France, this northeastern region lies on the Iberian Peninsula and benefits from 580 km of Mediterranean coastline. As a diverse macro-region, Cataluña produces a wide range of wines and styles and is home to several sub-regions including: Alella, Conca de Barberà, Costers del Segre, Empordà, Montsant, Penedès, Pla de Bages, Priorat, Tarragona, and Terra Alta. There is a strong French influence for example in Penedès, which is the center of Spanish sparkling wine - Cava DO, but also in Empordà, where late-harvest wines are made similar to those found in the French Roussillon region. Just to the west of Penedès lies Tarragona, which has two superior sub-regions, Montsant DO and the high-quality Priorat DOCa region. Priorat and Rioja are actually the only two regions in the country that are awarded with DOCa status. In general, Cataluña wines tend to be full-bodied and high in alcohol, due to the grape varieties and the region’s warm weather conditions. ...
