AFAIK the data are in a rotated-pole coordinate system (https://is-enes-data.github.io/cordex_archive_specifications.pdf) which should be supported by GDAL (https://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/4285) however I am unsure in which version of gdal (here I am using 2.2.2 (Ubuntu 16LTS, GRASS76)

Is there anywhere a file to play with?
