Clos Figueras - Priorat

The site of the Clos Figueras vineyard is magnificent with sweeping views over towards the Ebro river valley and the mountains of Bajo Aragon beyond. To the rear looms the massif Montsant mountain range and the famous Hermita hill, topped by an ancient and still inhabited chapel. Clos Figueras ranks with the leading names of the appellation and has the classic 'llicorella' soil, in the famous Gratallops zone of the Priorat appellation.The poor schist soil maintains production at an extremely low level while the vineyards are tended with ecology in mind and as little intervention as possible. Close neighbours include Clos Mogador, Clos Martinet, L'Ermita and Clos Erasmus. The property was acquired in October 1997 by Charlotte and Christopher Cannan on the recommendation of René Barbier, owner of the renowned Clos Mogador estate and founder of the "new wave" Priorat movement during the late 1980's. From the original vineyard a small plot of old Carignan vines was saved. The remainder was replanted with Grenache, Syrah, a very small quantity of Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvedre and Viognier. The second purchase included some 2 500 old vines Carignan and Grenache, some of which are more than 60 years old. Later some Touriga Nacional, Grenache Blanc and Chenin Blanc was added. The final blends, with the various grape varieties, are chosen by Christopher Cannan with the advice of Alain Graillot of Rhone Valley fame.
