40% Grenache, 20% each of Syrah, Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon. Much sweeter on the nose than the 2004 - sweet fruit and oak. Perfumed and savoury at the same time and softer than the 2004 though it still has great depth. Firmness builds in the mouth but it still finishes fresh. Clear minerality but it is the fruit that sings at the moment.

nose was closed as this is very young to drink. With air exhibits earth, barnyard, dark fruit extract, spice, licorice. On palate it is muscular, complex, spicy, tightly wound due to young age, but with aeration well integrated spice, round full mouth of berries and strong tannins. Should not drink for at least another five years and then should evolve for another decade or two.

A big fruit forward style wine that is thick and tremendous in flavor. Tannins are well integrated, but it is the fruit and grenache flavors that really come through. Takes 2 hours to begin to develop in the glass. A long smooth finish follows each gulp.

About This Producer


Rene Barbier of Clos Mogador has earned a place at the top of this region's producer list. He extracts juice of great structure and power from his fruit, all with the help of an olive press, which ensures even higher concentration from the already highly concentrated Priorat varietals. Minimal yields of 80-year old Carinena, as well as younger Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha, and Syrah are are hand-harvested from the schist soils in the village of Gratallops. Clos Mogador produces limited quantities of three wines: Clos Mogador (35% Garnacha, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, and 10% Carinena); Clos Manyetes (70% Carinena, 20% Garnacha, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Syrah); and Clos Nelin Joven (50% Garnacha Blanca, 30% Viognier, and 20% Pinot Noir).
