"Keeping the classical profile, the 2016 Clos Mogador has been fine tuned, reducing the French grapes, and it matured approximately 18 months in oak foudre and barriques. There is a lively sensation on the palate, vivacious and with very fine tannins. It has a meaty touch and feels really young , despite the long élevage. There is a strong mineral sensation on the palate, something that is a texture and mouthfeel rather than a flavor. This is an unusual, fresh vintage. 29,000 bottles produced."

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.
