About

Clos Mogador was founded in 1979 by René 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. A little later on came Nelin & Manyetes. - Importer Note


Tasting Notes

The 2020 Clos Mogador comes from a very challenging vintage in Priorat, a year with lots of rain and some fungus problems that are very unusual in the zone, which is usually very healthy. They bought a further four hectares so they could keep the volume despite the difficulties with mildew. The wine is more tannic and a little astringent despite now having any time in barrels anymore; starting this year, it matured exclusively in 2,000-liter oak foudre, and the impact of the wood is milder. A very good result, it's powerful but has good balance. The vintage is more tannic, and the quality of the tannins is not the same as those from 2019, as they couldn't wait for better tannins because of the risk of losing acidity and freshness. 26,000 bottles produced.
