Barbier, Clos Mogador, Priorat DOC No Reserve

Description

PRIORAT

Our Aunt Elisabeth Barbier, a gifted writer with a rich imagination, described in her book “The people of Mogador”, the activities, conflicts, love stories and disappointments experienced by this dynasty of wine growers.

In 1979, descendants of her family discovered a unique corner in a fairytale region where the vine flourishes. This area, known as the Priorat , is one of the oldest wine growing regions in the world. It takes its name from the 12th century “Priory”, the first Carthusian monastery ever built in Spain.

Yet the true origins of these vineyards can be traced back to Roman times. Today, the vines in this exceptional Priorat microclimate cover less than 2,000 hectares (just under 5,000 acres.) Clos Mogador is a vast amphitheatre of crumbling slate. The vines are surrounded by mountains up to 1.200 metres high and the vineyard’s lower extremes are lovingly caressed by the Siurana River. This river runs below a small hamlet of the same name that has a rich history, inspiring in the past some of the most daring Moorish legends.

This exceptional setting is capable of capturing the heart of any visitor. Words cannot describe one’s emotions to find oneself in a vineyard whose fruit depends on the altitude, exposure to the sun and influence of morning dews. All of Nature’s miracles combine to give birth to a wine, which goes by the name of Clos Mogador.

Grenache, Carignan, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon bide their time in carefully selected French oak barrels and only reappear when the moment is right, full of promise and hidden joy. This is by no means an industrial process. The few bottles of Clos Mogador are made with affection, attentively following in the ‘Grands Crus’ traditional artisan methods. Uncork a bottle of Clos Mogador, sit back, relax and enjoy the moment. Salut!

René Barbier
