@jacksonrohrbaugh’s recent article about the amazing Barbier family and how Clos Mogador started, got me all nostalgic. To read his article, click the link in bio. Notebook & wine glass in one hand, camera in the other, I had a terrific time with René Barbier son, who, of course, is fluent in French. (It keeps amazing me when I travel to secluded places and meet people who speaks French - but on a side note René grew up in France). . Here we are trying his Macabeu, that is going to be part of the ‘Nelin’ blend, after being fermented for a few weeks on skins in amphora.
