Why Com tú? It is a mixture between the Barbier philosophy and mine. It is a homage to all people, it does not matter the colour of their skin, their gender, whatever face or body they have, whether they have a disability or not, whether they are rich or they live hand to mouth, whether they have studies or not. The name of the wine has to remind you that we all are the same within. We all share basic needs, those make us human, those make us equal. In summary, I am like you (Com tú), you are like me.

On the other hand, the label is the result of a collaboration between my mother Isabelle, a great artist, and myself. If you look at it closely enough you will see two eyes, and within them a man and a woman, of a different race, holding hands through the glasses. They need each other so the glasses don’t fall off. This is the way I see that there is no future for men without women, no future with ethnic groups confronted; strength comes in numbers. The nose is my signature.

There is no edge on the picture, this gives people freedom to decide whether it is a man or a woman. The name of the wine is written over the mouth with different type of letters. The “C” refers to my curly hair. The “O” refers to the mouth, like the shape of an open door, (by the way, this is the same symbol the Japanese use;) open up and communicate among ourselves in order to avoid confrontation, in a world where war has already caused enough harm. The “M” for music, that soothes the animals and brings about peace (at least it does to me). The “T” are two pencils put together in perpendicular, as I like writing. And last but not least, the “U” is a bush, being a lover of nature as I am, it had to be there.

2020 is a year of contrasts. A year with a very abundant rainfall at the beginning of the cycle, a gift for our land. It was also a year of learning with the appearance of less common diseases in our lands. We lost some blossom, but we worked hard until well into June. At the end of that month, there was a radical change in the weather, a dry and hot summer, but unlike other years, the plants did not suffer any stress and we were able to arrive at harvest time with grapes that easily reached good maturity. With all this we have achieved a pleasant, balanced wine. I hope you enjoy it.

The reason this Project is so motivating for me is the change of soil. We have been working with licorella soil (slate) for more than twenty years, and now we have the chance to work with white clay, and this is very rewarding. One of the advantages of this type of soil is that it produces very fresh wines.

Com Tu is the space where the Barbier brothers, RenŽ and Christian, have sought each other out to collaborate in a project, created in La Figuera by Anderson Barbier, who gave it its name, to make it grow together. A new challenge. A new opportunity to learn together how to work the peculiarities of another area and, in ChristianÕs case, another Apellation of origin.
La Figuera, located in a higher altitude area within the Priorat region. A change of climatology and soil types, with a lot of clay, which conditions to work the land in a different way. A small village where everything is still to be built and which, with Com Tu, they want to help to make grow and, at the same time, strengthen the area and make it known. Where Grenache has a special uniqueness that captivated them.
The red Grenache of the three plots that make up Com Tu, between 50 and 80 years old, show, in their opinion, the character and potential of this land, La Figuera. A grape that leaves notes of orange in the glass, which identifies it.
The new label, which frames the drawing of La Figuera, clearly shows where it comes from and, at the same time, follows the aesthetics of the wines produced by Clos Mogador.
