Domaine des Tourelles

Rosé Bekaa Valley 2020

Alder Yarrow
9.1

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. — 24 days ago

Château Musar

Bekaa Valley Rosé Blend 2016

My first experience with one of Musar’s Rosés and I’ve got to say that it reminds me a lot of their Blanc but with a kiss of red fruit…which, in a sense, is exactly how this wine is made. Popped and poured; consumed over two hours. Served just a touch below cellar temp but it warmed in the glass. The wine presents as a sort of pale copper color. On the nose, a rather fascinating array of fruit including strawberry, watermelon, bing cherry, grapefruit, and generic tropical fruit. On the palate, I’m reminded more of Rainier cherries with kiwi, lemon, lanolin and almond skin. A rather fabulous body with wonderful texture…not too unlike LdH’s Tondonia Rosado, actually. Medium- tannin and medium+ acid. The finish is long and satisfying. No doubt, this is a very nerdy rosé and one that I look forward to experiencing more often! FWIW, Delectable misidentifies this as a blend of Chardonnay, Semillon and Cinsault when in fact this is Obaideh, Merwah and Cinsault. — a month ago
