The flagship and eponymous 2019 Clos Mogador is nothing short of phenomenal. They have done a lot of improvements in the vineyard work since the arrival of Christian, son of René Barbier, who is big-time into regenerative agriculture. They are abandoning barrels and going for more and more foudres (they started the transition in 2011, and in 2020 it was 100% foudre). As I see in other wines from 2019, the wine has lots of everything, stuffing, power and concentration but also balance. This has to be one of the finest vintages ever for Mogador; it's a compact wine with lots of aging potential. 28,000 bottles produced. It was a year of good quality and quantity. Best after 2023.

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.
