Clos Mesorah is the new flagship wine from Anne & Moises Cohen, from their family state vineyard & winery in the Montsant, Priorat in Spain. It is organically maintained and estate bottled. The Priorat wine region is considered among the top 5 quality regions in the world.
The idea being that this Clos Mesorah (Clos in French means close/enclave/family and Mesorah means generation/history/ transmission) is a winery and wine from their family's vineyard that is rooted in wine history and very old tradition. Further the circle like image on the label closes the loop around their family, love and passion for all things of the vine.
Clos Mesorah, is made with 95 years old Carignan, blended with Grenache and Syrah.
Passionate about the terroir, they are always looking for the best fruit and the best environment letting the terroir peak for itself. Whether that is small ripe berries, to concentrate the fruit flavor, open bunches (where the fruit is exposed to the sunlight), or the way the soil and ground cover manage the water consumption of the vines.
