Red plum/purple colored with a bit of rustic shade and mineral aroma. Medium bodied with mild tannins and a bit of spice at the end.
External Reviews for Clos Mogador Renée Barbier Gratallops D.o.ca. Priorat
Simply sensational, this inky/purple-colored 2001 boasts gorgeous blueberry and raspberry liqueur characteristics intertwined with crushed stone, lilac, and subtle background espresso/toasty new oak notes. Powerful, concentrated, and multilayered, with tremendous purity and intensity, this prodigious effort is one of the candidates for wine of the vintage in Priorat. Anticipated maturity: 2007ndash;2020.
Suave, sophisticated, rich and concentrated, but remains balanced and polished, with bright blueberry and blackberry flavors supported by toasty, vanilla-scented oak. A modern wine with great structure and harmony. Best after 2005.
Rene Barbier, the pioneer of Priorat, pulled together a beautiful wine in what was, at best, a mediocre vintage. Admittedly, it starts out coarse and grainy, but airing shows juicy red fruit and a level of complexity thatandrsquo;s up there. More the total than a collection of spare parts; as a result, itandrsquo;ll drink wonderfully around 2006andndash;2007. A mix of Cabernet, Carinena, Garnacha and Syrah.
From the renowned producer Renandeacute; Barbier, this 2002 exhibits plenty of tannin, but I still would not push its aging as I find most of these 2002s to possess fragile fruit. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet aromas of blackberries, minerals, and a steel-like character. its fragrant personality is backed up by medium to full-bodied flavors with fine density, purity, and overall equilibrium. Drink it over the next 7andndash;8 years.
