Cuvée Rouge Red Blend 2000

Amazing stuff. Cinnamon, ripe orange, cloves, barnyard, ultra smooth, almost Pinot Noir like. Long and velvety, balsamico and strawberry, black tea, a touch of leather and funk. WOTN. — a month ago

Domaine des Tourelles

Vallée de la Bekaa White Blend

2019 vintage. Viognier 65%, Chardonnay 20%, Obeidi 10%, Muscat d'Alexandrie 5%. Vineyards at 1050 m altitude in the Bekaa Valley. Aromatic exotic nose (pineapple, mango). Ripe bright exotic fruit balanced by crisp acidity. Good intensity, very refreshing and nice aftertaste. Very good value at around 13 euro. — a month ago

Brought this bottle back from a lovely restaurant in the Lebanese hill town of Jezzine, about 20 miles from the Syrian border. Great easy-drinking red with grilled meats. — 19 days ago

Coteaux du Liban

Chateau Red Blend 2014

2004 vintage. I had a bottle of this 2004 cabernet sauvignon /syrah/merlot blend before, and this bottle seems so much younger. As a reminder, this is the top wine of the estate, produced only in the very best years (2004, 2007 and 2010 up to now, with 2015 and 2017 in the pipeline) and released when it starts to be ready to drink. Complex nose with dark cherries, dried figs, tobacco and cedar wood. Harmonious taste, delicate cherry fruit, combined with subtle spices, fresh acidity and gently extracted tannins. Nice length too. Amazing value. Grows in the glass, take your time or decant. — a month ago
