Beautiful ruby purple red, a fruity nose of raspberries, black current and a little vanilla. In the mouth, it has power and length with balanced and mellow tannins that get rounder with time, taking up a leather and spicy character. This Chateau will keep surprising, due to its complexity and richness.

Wine maker notes
Winemaking All grape varietals are 100% stemmed, vatted separately to be fermented at a temperature between 28 and 30C and left to age 14 to 20 days before being drained and undergoing malolactic fermentation. Maturing The draw-off wine and the presses are kept in separate vats during wintertime in order to free them from their lees, before being put in oak casks. Maturing in new oak casks last approximately 12 months, interrupted by several racking-off and tasting before blending, fining with egg albumine and bottling. Bottles are then kept to age for around two years in our underground ageing-cellars before being made available to the consumer.

Technical notes
This is the pre-eminently best keeping wine, issued from 60% of Cabernet-Sauvignon, 30% of Merlot and 10% of Petit Verdot.

Food pairing
Due to its structure, it will go perfectly with game, red meat, dishes in sauce, as well as fish cooked with red wine. It should be served at room temperature between 18 and 20C depending on the season.

Lebanese wine tradition dates back 5,000 years, when the ancient inhabitants of Lebanon, the Phoenicians, first began tending vineyards. The Phoenicians exported wine to ancient Egypt, Rome, Greece and Carthage; introducing the world to viticulture and oenology. Lebanon is also said to be the place where Jesus performed the miracle of turning water into wine. Chateau Ksara has preserved Lebanon’s rich wine making heritage for over 150 years, laying down the foundation for Lebanon’s modern wine making industry. Founded in 1857 by Jesuit Priests who produced the country’s first dry red wine, Chateau Ksara is Lebanon’s oldest, largest and most visited winery, attracting some 40,000 visitors per year. As Lebanese vintners increasingly attract international acclaim, and wine tourism begins to flourish, Chateau Ksara leads the wine making industry with its respect for tradition and commitment to modernity.
