Overview of the Wine
Christopher Cannan purchased Clos Figueres in 1997 on the advice of René Barbier of Clos Mogador. The vineyards cover some 10 hectares. There are about 2500 old Carignan and Grenache vines planted more than 20 years ago for the Clos Figueres label. The remainder, about 50% Grenache, 20% Syrah, some Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvèdre were planted in 1998 and are used for the production of Font de la Figuera. The location is just to the north of Gratallops on terraced slopes of pure schist, the soil responsible for the finest wines of Priorat. From these high terraces, the views are one direction the famous Ermita vineyard and the craggy Montsant mountain range behind it; in the other a long-distance vista featuring the Ebro Valley and more mountains beyond.

René Barbier's team takes care of the vineyards as well as the vinification and ageing of the wines. Clos Figueres now ranks with the best of Priorat, while the second wine, Font de la Figuera, represents remarkable value for the region. Recently, they have also launched production of a unique and exciting white Priorat, based on rich Garnacha Blanca, with 10% Viognier to add lift and aromatic complexity.

    Winemaker's Tasting Notes
    Clos Figueres has a denser rich ruby color with wonderful scents of ripe blackberries and blueberries intermingled with the rich mineral flavors of a great Priorat. On the palate Clos Figueres is approachable with pure intense flavors and a lush smooth texture. Loaded with fresh red and black fruit, intermixed with minerals and spices, the finish is long and smooth. A delight for drinking over the next 12 to 15 years.

    92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    The red blend 2018 Font de la Figuera is composed of 58% Garnacha and 25% Cariñena and the rest 10% Syrah and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon from their vineyards in Gratallops on the classical llicorella slate soils from Priorat. It fermented in stainless steel and some used oak barrels and matured in French oak barrels for 12 months. It's very Priorat, with power, contained ripeness and nice freshness; it has a note of graphite and earth and very fine tannins and is nicely balanced, combining clout and elegance. This is a cuvée of 9,000 to 10,000 bottles per year. The 2018 was bottled in February. I really like this 2018.
