Red Wine - Lebanon
Domaine des Tourelles Marquis des Beys Red
Grape Varieties: Syrah & Cabernet Sauvignon
Domaine des Tourelles was founded in 1868 by French adventurer François-Eugène Brun and is one of the most highly acclaimed and oldest wineries still operating in Lebanon. The Brun family owned and ran the winery up until the last descendant died in 2003 but luckily two local families - the Issa and Issa el-Khoury families - joined forces to buy the property and continue the fine tradition of winemaking.
Tasting Note: Produced from specially selected parcels of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, it has a deeply red garnet hue with darkly intriguing brambly fruit and spice nose. It’s densely packed with sumptuous flavours of blackcurrants and chocolate with a pure, crunchy, fine core. It’s very more-ish with fine tannins that help retain its freshness.
