Spot Offer #118: 2012 Clos Mogador 

It’s hard to come up with superlatives to describe Clos Mogador which haven’t already been used. There is something so seemingly mythical and lyrical – even poetic – about this iconic Spanish winery; a project driven by an abundant and authentic love of wine, family and history. An hour or so north of Barcelona we come upon one of the most scenic and magical wine regions I’ve ever had the privilege to visit.

Red Wines, Wine of the Week

Wine of the Week #1528: 2013 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-du-Pape “Telegramme” 

“Telegramme” is the “2nd wine” of Vieux Telegraphe – one of the noble names of France’s southern Rhone Valley and one of the great wine estates of France. Vieux Telgraphe produces serious wines that are a must-have for serious wine collectors. Their flagship bottling from at Vieux Telegraphe comes from the famous “La Crau” site – a vineyard that would undoubtedly be amongst the very top “Grand Crus” if the Rhone used the same vineyard designation system found in Burgundy.

Spot Offer #107: 2013 Clos Figueras “Serras del Priorat” 

The playful label adorning this bottle belies the impressive nectar you’ll discover after pulling the cork. Produced by the Cannan family, owners of Clos Figueras, this wine is a delicious introduction to the style and profile of Spain’s Priorat appellation. With a winemaking heritage originally dating back to Roman times, one can only imagine that these dramatic cliffside vineyards proved too challenging and too expensive a place to make wine – and has only reemerged over the past couple of decades as a preeminent wine producing region of Spain.
