Description: The wines of Priorat may be modelled after Bordeaux but they are really something else in the flesh. Made predominantly with Grenache in the sunny high altitude vineyards of Priorat in Catalunya, these wines are bold, spicy and complex. The Clos Figueras estate was founded by Christopher Cannan, an ex-Bordeaux wine merchant, who fell in love with the wines of Priorat. Through a few serendipitous meetings with other Priorat winemakers, Christopher decided he too would like to get his hands dirty. The estate now is considered to be amongst the top few in the region and this magnum will be sure to impress.
