My first experience with a Lebanese wine and I’m loving it. Starts with buttery popcorn on the nose, the palate opens with citrus, and the finish sways back onto the Chardonnay style malo butter. Very interesting blend of flavours. Quite impressed!

Vintage 2016 - quite surprising, vannila banaan and after aeration milkchocolate citrus. Prominent bitter in taste, good acidity.

First Lebanese wine. And loved it with all that Mamnoon had to offer (thanks to Wasif, the gentleman proprietor as well). A blanc de blanc that could make many Californian winemakers smile. Perfect with the hummus and the mahi. Can't wait to get back here.

Here you definitely get more tropical fruit on the nose, like pineapple with some butter'ish quality to it. Once on the palate astringent and mineral

First wine ever from Lebanon, from a Château established by the Jesuits. . Nice white blend. Very enjoyable even as it warmed up.

Transparently formulated, with Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon providing classic lime and gooseberry aromatics. Chardonnay dominates the palate, lending body but unfortunately very little in the way of flavor. Neutral and dull as an aperitif but should be nice with oysters.

Floral. Hints of pear, lemon, guava, and honeysuckle with a dry finish. Good acidity. Paired really well with the green salad and mushroom, spinach, and Alfredo pizza. $9-ish @ Phoenicia.
