Audrey Doré, Head Sommelier at El Celler de Can Roca (Girona, Spain) MOGADOR   2021

In Catalonia we are fortunate to have many wine regions, very diverse, rich in varieties and terroirs.
But when I am asked for a wine to represent it, Clos Mogador is probably for me the wine that best expresses the identity of Catalonia.
Clos Mogador symbolizes the resurgence of such an arid wine-growing area that had been abandoned and now has the highest international scores.
It is the story of a family that has led the challenges of the Priorat of the 1980s and continues to lead the current concerns; the commitment to care for the environment, the regeneration of the land and an agriculture that accompanies rather than intervenes.
It is also a landscape, an iconic vineyard, cared for like a jewel in its case of licorella, forests and mountains.
It is the bottled Mediterranean, the essence of Catalonia concentrated in a glass.
The 2021 vintage was a respite between the 2020 vintage, renamed “two mildew” and the two subsequent vintages marked by severe droughts.
A relatively fresh vintage that gives us a wine with an unusual continental character in the Priorat.
René’s desire over the years has been to vinify fresher wines, with a much lesser impact of oak, with more prominence of Grenache and Carignan, all so that we can enjoy a wine that is purer, concentrated and subtle at the same time.
This Clos Mogador 2021 is all delicacy on the nose. The fruit is fresh, the aromatic Mediterranean herbs refined.
The palate, on the other hand, is deep, with a satiny texture and a measured grip.
A rarity that thrills from the start, just a prelude to the magnitude it will reach.
Vi de finca (Estate-bottled, single vineyard wine) MOGADOR   2021

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.
