The latest vintage of Clos Mogador very much follows in the family footsteps. These are all powerful, well structured wines, deeply marked by their terroir and destined to age favourably for years to come. Now, after little more than a year of bottle ageing, this wine reveals a constrained potency, very typical of its youth.

After the wine is uncorked, its bouquet takes time to develop, making it advisable to decant the wine before drinking. If we heed this advice, Clos Mogador truly shows off its enormously broad spectrum of aromas, with intense notes of fruit, touches of fennel, aromatic wild herbs mixed with peaks of tobacco and cocoa. It has a very opulent mouth-feel and coats the palate with its elegantly worked and balanced tannins. The wine’s powerful alcohol content and great acidity provides it with force and structure. It is plump, with a wide range of flavours. It has a good background of oak with notes of cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla and the fruitiness of its “coupage”.

The twenty-first century will find this wine is at its best for celebrating the new millennium.
