Beautiful Beaujolais that transcends the appellation. With 3 years it’s starting to behave like a Pinot Noir. Blind of all, we’d certainly be wrong. A wine that needs at least one hour of aeration to give time to the beautiful material to deploy. Fine, tight and persistent tannins. Serve at 12-13 degrees.
Superbe Beaujolais qui transcende l’appellation. Avec 3 ans ça commence à se comporter comme un pinot noir, d’ailleurs à l’aveugle on s’y tromperait certainement. Un vin qui a besoin d’une heure d’aération au moins pour laisser le temps à la belle matière de se déployer. Tanins fin, serrés et persistants. Servir à 12-13 degrés. — 15 days ago

We should all be drinking more Lebanese wine. Their economy could use the help in general, and the wine industry specifically. This is an interesting wine, made from old vines (70+) and a mix of Syrah, Tempranillo, and Cinsault. The Tempranillo and Cinsault are direct-pressed and see no skin contact, while the Syrah macerated for a couple of days. It’s got a wonderful smoked orange peel and clove character mixed with cherry and dried green herbs. Excellent acidity and length. Domaine des Tourelles has been making wine in the Bekaa valley since 1868, and is still owned by the Brun family who founded it. — a month ago

Flowers, potpourri, lavender, lilacs, and raspberry. There’s still a tannic structure just not letting go and lots of acidity. I’m not so sure the flavor profile will change much. A bit of earth and mushroom come through with red fruit and similar flowers. It’s good. It’s ready. — a month ago
