To speak about CM is a great honour for me.
Let’s not mince words, I am a great lover of the Priorat region, the CM winery and, or course, of the man himself – René Barbier. Without him, the region would not be where it is today. His influence has allowed the region rebirth, regrowth and fruitfulness.
I also really appreciate the links between the Barbier wines and Switzerland. The first vintage (1989) was practically all exported to Switzerland by the Loparco family. They had the vision to foresee, nearly 30 years ago, that Priorat would, one day, be recognised throughout the world.
Let’s talk about the 2015 vintage which was a fantastic year in Priorat. All the prevailing conditions were ideal for producing a great CM. The visual aspect of the wine is a sumptuous, intense ruby red colour. On the nose it is both complex and pleasing with aromas of ripe red and black fruits which marry perfectly with the notes of liquorice and chocolate. On the elegant, beautifully dense palate, we can detect hints of spiciness overlaid with smoky, peppery woodiness. The tannins are persistent and tightly knit with a finesse which allows an astonishingly prolonged aftertaste. This is a thoroughbred of a wine encompassing elegant, enduring qualities. Although quite magnificent now, if you can hide it away somewhere for a few years, you will not be disappointed!
Thank you, Isabelle and René, for allowing us the privilege of tasting such wines, for your hard work and for the passion you have for this area which has allowed us to discover the region in a most delightful manner.
Vi de finca (Estate-bottled, single vineyard wine) MOGADOR   2015

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.
