Clos Figueras Font de la Figuera

$78.86

“Clos Figueras is the personal project of Christopher Cannan, a veteran of the wine trade who created Europvin, one of the major wine importers in the world. The winery was created in 1997 and has 22 hectares of land, 12 of them planted to Garnacha, Cariñena, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Garnacha Blanca, Viognier and Chenin Blanc, with new plantings of Cabernet Franc, Viognier, Garnacha and Syrah in 2019, all in the village of Gratallops. Farming is certified organic, and they follow the biodynamic calendar but are not certified. The wines are under the charge of his daughter, Ann-Josephine Cannan, Silvia Puig and his Rhône friend Alain Graillot. Total production averages 35,000 bottles, and what I tasted this time I thought it was better than ever!

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.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
