The Rene Barbier Clos mogador Manyetes carries the "Vi de Villa Gratallops" on the label, because it is from Carinena vineyards in the village of Gratallops. The vineyard is located at almost 400 meters and is only 10 hectares (of which only 3 hectares are vines) in the most inhospitable Priorat part. The Manyetes is a 100% Carignan which has been allowed to mature for 18 months in the best (new) European oak. The bright purple-colored Manyetes has a complex nose of wet slate, graphite and peat mixed with blueberry, violet and licorice aromas in a very harmonious way. The taste is wonderfully rustic, with polished tannins, good acidity, pure flavors and a very long finish. It is made from the classic Priorat grape, the Carignan, from a very old vineyard. This is the brother of the better known Clos Mogador, but this is mainly because only 1740 bottles were made (and of the 2020 only a few hundred bottles were bottled). but this brother of the Clos Mogador is so beautiful.

The different terroirs that exist within the Priorat wine appellation have led to the creation of a new "Village Wine - Gratallops". Just like in Burgundy, France and is a bit comparable to Antinori with its Super Tuscans. Manyetes is the name of a vineyard in Gratallops: a daring venture where vines can hardly survive given the region's poor soil and intense sunlight. The vines are literally surviving, but this is exactly what the main essence of Priorat wines is. Extremely low yields, a vine that has to root extremely deeply on the steeply sloping slate slopes and this extraordinary vineyard in an extraordinary environment produces extraordinary wines. The 2020 was extreme because there was less than a barrel of fruit, so in the end there were only a few hundred bottles bottled (only 20% of the already small production of 1,400 bottles in an average year). Connoisseurs know: low yield almost always means very high quality and this is no different with this Manyetes 2020. A collector's item and one for the basement.

René Barbier Meyer, Clos Mogador Winery Winemaker

An exceptionally different vintage. In the first week of the year, a heavy snowfall left a seasoning that lasted throughout the year with light rains every month. After a year of good rainfall that helped to maintain good reserves in the soil. The vegetation cover provided food and shelter for biodiversity, an ally in pest control. The high summer temperatures helped to keep vine diseases at bay. The vineyard arrived very full of vegetation, with 30% more grapes, allowing a good ripening that completely changed the concentration to which we were accustomed. The wines were able to achieve balance much more easily while maintaining good minerality and acidity, bringing freshness and elegance to all of them. The most abundant year in history. A vintage that reflects the weather more than the winemaker. René Barbier Meyer, Clos Mogador Winery Winemaker
