Miguel Laredo Fernandez. Owner of La Taverna Laredo MOGADOR   2007

When René, Isabelle and Jordi asked me to organise the Mogador 07 tasting I was of course, honoured. However, I think there are three very important factors to consider in its favour:

The Terroir. This is the only officially recognised “Vino de Pago” (Estate Wine). It was a cool year in terms of climate and René’s work was very careful throughout… What great colour! What intensity! I love to refer to it as “red-black” with a violet robe, which tells us of its youth.

The nose is mixed with mineral aromas and fresh red fruit, which even in its youthful state is already showing great complexity and will continue to develop in the future.

The mouth is sumptuous. Even more surprising is its acidity which predicts a very long life. Minerals are wrapped in fresh fruit and skilfully combined with oak.

This is a hedonistic wine to be enjoyed over many years…

Long live Mogador!
Vi de finca (Estate-bottled, single vineyard wine) MOGADOR   2007

For the first time in our country, Clos Mogador, one of the prestigious wines made by René Barbier in the D.O.Ca. Priorat, was awarded the prestigious qualification of «Vi de Finca».

“Vi de Finca” is an additional qualification to the D.O.Ca. Priorat certification, which already recognizes this wine. Clos Mogador was the first wine to receive this prestigious qualification in the whole of Spain. It certifies that all grapes used to make this wine over at least the last five years have been sourced from the Clos Mogador single vineyard (five years which can be documented and traced), and at the same time is awarded to a wine which has received international acclaim over at least the last ten years.
