"Bright violet color. Lively, mineral-accented aromas of cassis, cherry pit and black pepper, with a hint of cola in the background. Spicy and sharply focused, offering lively dark berry and bitter cherry flavors with zesty mineral bite. Shows very good clarity and lift on the finish, with smooth tannins sneaking up slowly."
Clos Figueras has a spectacular vineyard, with the classic “llicorella” soil, in one piece, just to the north of the famed town of Gratallops, overlooking the Montsant river valley.
The property was purchased in October 1997 by Charlotte and Christopher Cannan on the recommendation of Réné Barbier, owner of the famous Clos Mogador estate and founder of the “new wave” movement in Priorat during the late 1980’s. The initial purchase of 10 hectares of abandoned terraces was followed by a new acquisition in 2000, completing the 18 hectares estate.
