The 2015 Clos Mogador is a absolutely stunning release from this historic Priorat estate. Located in Gratallops, in the heart of the Priorat hills, René Barbier, one of the founders of the Priorat revolution, crafts an incredible blend of 40% Garnacha (lauched from 80 year old vines), 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah and 5% Morvedre, Pinot Noir, and Merlot. This immediately reveals seductive aromas of red cherry preserves, rose petals and roasted figs. On the palate this is ripe and intense, yields bright flavors of orange rind, red cherry and red raspberry with wild thyme and garrigue flavors. Intoxicating and beautifully structured, this beautiful wine will evolve gracefully for many years to come. Drink 2019-2040- 95

It‘s been a while. A colleague turned my attention to Priorats and I had a few of the 2015 in the cellar so I opened one. Lovely. Intense and so typical.

Excellent. Tons of fruit, herbs, olives and savory notes. Refined and integrated tannins with a lengthy finish.

Latest vintage of one of my favourite Priorats we grabbed in 🇪🇸 for €69 (£74 in 🇬🇧) & it’s sure loaded with potential 😉 Good but give 5-10 years & it’s a 😈 that will reward big time 😍 I still think the 2013 has an edge 😎 the 2015 needs more time for minerality to ease 👍 opens to a typical choc cherry gateaux 😋

📍 Clos Mogador 2015

🏵 94-95 points w/ more penitential aged

🍇 45% Grenache, 29% Carignan, 16% Syrah & 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

🍷 Opaque blackened ruby w/ purple tint

👃 Peppered blackcurrant & dark cherry in creamy cocoa w/ soft oak, mineral rocks, raspberry, purple flowers, blueberry, coffee, liquorice & herbs

👄 Med+ body of rich ripe smooth blackcurrant & dark cherry in dry minerals & raspberry chocolate cake in fine dry tannins w/ nicely integrated oak

🎯 Long mineral infused touch dry dark berry & cherry cocoa cream purple teeth stain w/ a red & purple liquorice kicker

Simply a great wine to enjoy! 2015 is still young to drink, but shows full potential! Aromas of licorice, cherry, blackberry. Nice tannins, not ready yet. Lingering longish aftertaste. Very elegant serious wine, classical example of wine from old vines in Priorat
