Clos Mogador 2000 (Parker 98)
Clos Mogador, the first Vino de Finca from Q.D.O. Priorat, is one of those wines that moves us. The thrill of feeling the greatness of the earth of Priorat in a cup. One way to understand its nature and fruits, masterfully led by the oenologist René Barbier who guides the elaboration process. Clos Mogador is a coupage of Garnacha, Cariñena, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grown from 2000 hectares of vertiginous slated lands. Through a careful selection process, Clos Mogador grapes are fermented in different kinds of deposits (wooden, steel and concrete) and aged for 20 months in 300 litre Allier and Nevers French oak barrels. 70% of the barrels used were new and the rest were second year barrels. Once bottled it stays in the winery's cellar for 12 months before being released to the market. A wine with an evolution as you drink it. It is recommended to decant it, at least two hours before enjoying. It can be stored for a long time.
