Red Wine - Lebanon
Domaine des Tourelles Vielles Vignes Cinsault
Grape Varieties: 100% Cinsault.
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: The nose has an exotic mix of ripe fig, bright cranberry and raspberry fruit with notes of liquorice, lifted and pronounced. The palate has more beautifully ripe red fruit characters, along side lively fig and date notes, the acidity perfectly balances the generous flavours and leaves a pure, clean finish.
