"This time there were two vintages of the top-of-the-range red to taste, as the 2014 is almost finished and the 2015 Clos Mogador will be released soon. In this warmer vintage, there is a little more Cariñena in the blend, with the final breakdown something like 45% Garnacha, 29% Cariñena, 16% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. This had the same vinification and aging as the 2014: fermentation with indigenous yeasts and a 35- to 45-day maceration, followed by an élevage in 300-liter barrels and 2,000-liter foudres that lasted 18 months. 2015 is a rounder and easier year than 2014, and it feels a little riper, supple but with good freshness. It's clean and precise with nicely integrated oak. This was an easy vintage for the winery, and the wines are easy to understand and more approachable early on."

Founded in 1979 by René Barbier III and his wife, Isabelle Meyer, Clos Mogador was part of a new wave of ‘Clos’ wineries that released their first joint 1989 vintage to great acclaim. They have gone on to garner impressive scores by wine critics and have built up one of the most well-known brands in all of Priorat.
René Barbier III is descended from a family of French winemakers although he was born in Tarragona and grew up in Catalonia. Coming with his wife Isabelle Meyer and their young children to the Priorat region, he found a promising wine region that had been neglected for years.
In addition to their namesake Clos Mogador, they released a white wine called Nelin as well as another red called, Manyetes. The Clos Mogador was one of the first wines to be awarded the ‘Vi de Finca’ certification in Catalonia which signifies that it has been produced for over a decade from the same, single vineyard.
The name of the winery comes from ‘Les Gens de Mogador’ (The people of Mogador) which chronicles the rise and fall of a family from near Avignon in France on an imaginary estate called, Mogador and closely parallels the Barbier family history.
