Nelin Priorat White Blend 2012

One of my favorite whites. First, because it’s so good but, also for its uniqueness. It’s a wild blend of; Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo, Marsanne, Pedro Ximénez, Pinot Noir & Viognier.

The color is pale gold.

On the nose; because of the bottle age, you get just a hint of petroleum. Ripe peach, pineapple, orange zest, some green & more golden apple, nectarines, lemon/lime, ginger, chalky volcanic minerals, smokiness and yellow florals.

The body is round, full and waxy. It’s simply delicious and unlike most whites many have experienced. Touch of petroleum, ripe peach, nectarines, dry apricots, marmalade, orange zest, overripe pineapple, golden apple with just a hint of green apple, beeswax, meyer lemon, some lime flesh, touch of ginger, a little smokiness, chalky volcanic minerals and beautiful yellow florals from the Viognier. The acidity is round and perfect. The long, lush, rich, well balanced is artful and lasts two minutes.

Treat yourself and get a couple bottles. You’ll be glad you did.

Photos of, Clos Mogador, their barrel room, René Barbier Jr. - a great guy who told us to jump in his SUV and drove us through their steep vineyards. Some tricky driving for the novice but not René and one of hillside vineyards.

Outstanding producer in Priorat. If you visit them, have lunch at Amics about two miles from Clos Mogador. Perhaps, the best lunch and value we’ve had at a non-starred Michelin restaurant that absolutely deserves one and maybe two. They also do a lot catering for Clos Erasmus and the other Bodegas in the area

Rene was a great host. The restaurant was amazing! We were the only ones there as it was low season and a Tuesday. The husband is the chef, the wife the hostess/server- truly a memorable meal. Worth the drive out from Barcelona 👍🏽

Clos Mogador

Priorat Red Blend 2013

Prompted to have this for Sunday lunch after David and Sofias note on their Clos Mogador white a few days ago @David Trumper Clos Mogador made by Rene Barbier arguably the father of modern Priorat. Dense Ruby with youthful purple tinges. Somewhat closed and brooding on the nose and arguably drinking this too young at 7 years. Rich and full bodied on the palate showing blue fruits and a definite minerality from all that slate. This story well told in the Documentary “Dreaming of Wine” where it looks impossible to grow vines in the slate with Daphne Glorian from Clos Erasmus saying you need dynamite to prepare the vineyard. With this wine it’s best is yet to come. — 2 years ago

A little off at first, a bit restrained. It continued to open but perhaps past its prime. Outdone by two wines in the flight (78 Bosconia and 94 Clos Erasmus) — 5 years ago
