APPROACHING PERFECTION : 98, 99,…

« SPECTACULAR » CLOS MOGADOR, AND ESPECTACLE !
Robert Parker’s Spanish wine expert Luis Gutierrez publishes his latest reviews of Priorat and Montsant wines, and René Barbier steals the show :

CLOS MOGADOR PRIORAT 2012
« The 2012 Clos Mogador is nothing short of spectacular…The super-elegant palate offers great acidity and freshness with incredibly layered and delineated flavors that have an electric, mineral sensation with tension and really fine tannins. There are no traces of oak and no edges... rugged silk? This is a Mogador for decades. If this is always a bargain for the quality it delivers, it is even more so in 2012! » 98 points

ESPECTACLE MONTSANT 2012
« Almost reaching perfection...The 2012 Espectacle is amazing, probably the best vintage produced so far. The highly aromatic wine is full of red berries, flowers, spices that are showy and heady; it goes straight to your brain and it stays there.» 99 points
