WINERY PROFILE | Clos Figueras

“The 2005 Font de la Figuera is purple-colored with aromas of mineral, earth, spice box, black cherry, and black raspberry. Chunky and slightly rustic in personality, the wine has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years. Clos Figueres was purchased in 1997 by importer Christopher Cannan on the advice of Rene Barbier. The older Carignan and Grenache vines, planted for the original Clos Figueres estate, are used for the Clos Figueres bottling while the newer vineyards planted in 1998 are used for Font de la Figuera. Rene Barbier’s team handles the viticulture and winemaking.”
