The flagship 2018 Clos Mogador is a blend of 45% Garnacha, 29% Cariñena, 16% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that fermented with natural yeasts and showcases their philosophy—slow fermentations with long maceration and long aging. It matured for 18 months in 2,000-liter oak vats and 30% in 300-liter oak barrels. There was a lot of rain in 2018, and the vineyards were extremely happy and everything seemed very easy; in fact, René Barbier told me it was perhaps too easy... It's an atypical year: It has a gentle profile, and the wines are not as concentrated as those from 2013 (the last rainy year before 2018)—they are more elegant and nuanced. This should develop beautifully in bottle. 27,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2020.--Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate

Subtle dark cherry notes with a touch of fig, porcini, minor earthy notes, ginger spice and black pepper, delicate floral notes at the fringes. Well fruited if a bit of jumpy at the moment as the fruit is still integrating with the tannins. Quite lengthy, linear acidity and a finish that is just starting to open up. - Miquel Hudin, Decanter
