Tasted in November

Clos Mogador 2002 shows a very deep robe with violet tones which confirm its current youth.

Its intense aroma is marked by small black berries (cherry, blackcurrant), accompanied by well integrated oak which give it elegance and complexity.
A hint of liquorice appears with underlying freshness. After a few minutes notes of menthol appear as well as sweet spices, coffee and figs.

On the palate this wine is well balanced and full. Its tannins are still lively, but they are very pleasant. The wine is rich in alcohol yet it is well compensated for by a sensation of freshness which enables the wine to maintain its elegant character. It finishes with touches of liquorice.

This wine ought to be decanted before tasting.

Still a very young wine, but more accessible than the 2001 vintage. René has offered us a balanced Clos Mogador for 2002 which is fine, elegant and reflects the harvesting style in Priorat.
