Clos Mogador

Priorat Red Blend 2013

See previous Delectable note. I love this style of wine - also a great back story. Black cherry, red licorice, dried plum - ripe and intoxicating on the nose. Slaty, minerally even gravelly yet full bodied and savoury with plush rich fruit, Mediterranean herbs like fennel. You need to taste this wine while watching the Documentary, “Dreaming of Wine “ about the pioneers of the revival of Priorat, like Rene Barbier, the creator of Clos Mogador which I am sipping while watching. Makes me want to buy more Priorat. We are planning a visit there in May this year. 49% Garnacha, 25.% Carinena, 16% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. — 9 months ago

I loved this wine when it was first released in the mid-late nineties. I held near a case of the 2002 and 2003 but found that, at that time the wines felt less balanced with bottle age and the alcohol dominated. I understand that the style has evolved, with less extraction, less ripeness and less new wood, so I'm glad to see that more recent vintages are aging so well.

Thanks for your insights Andrew. I’m just considering a purchase from Montsant, the near northern neighbour to Priorat.

Côte Blonde Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2009


Nose of ripe plums, blackberries, meats, vanilla and violets. Dark red with slight fading and brown tints around the rim. Creamy and remarkably delicate for the nose, rounded fruits, acidity doing well for balance, slight tightness still in the middle and proper finish of fruits and red/violet florals. Woody notes, grilled meats, slight wet stones. — 5 months ago

Clos Mogador

Clos Nelin Priorat White Blend 2019

At the Clos Mogador tasting at the winery yesterday. The fact that it was 3rd in the lineup after 2 full bodied reds was no accident This full bodied delicious white more than held its own. A golden yellow in colour - fermented on skins in a combination of vessels including clay amphora. Could be drunk now or last for 20 years. Rene Barbier recently opened a 2000 for the staff and it was stunning Josep said. Notes of dried peaches and tangerine peel. Very mineral. Dense on the palate with great weight. 85% Grenache Blanc with 15% many other varieties. — 6 months ago

@Tom Casagrande Almost everything went into the spit bucke as this was an unplanned tasting exercise, but this C-M was for drinking (a very short glass).
