Domaine des Tourelles Marquis des Beys Red 2017
Description and tasting notes
Parcels of Syrah and Cabernet-Sauvignon were especially selected to create this outstanding Domaine des Tourelles Marquis des Beys Red: a sheer pleasure. Its dark purple color is a true illustration of its depth. The very first taste reveals a cedar aroma, a gentle reminder that this premium wine is an illustrious ambassador of Lebanon. Aged in French oak barrels for 18 months.
Grapes: Syrah (50%), Cabernet-Sauvignon (50%).
Tasting notes: The best parcels are selected yearly to create this premium wine which stands as an illustrious ambassador of what Lebanon has to offer; with its dark purple color and cedar aromas, this is a powerful wine that will reward the patience of those who cellar it for 5 to 8 years and even more. Decant and enjoy it with braised lamb, Moroccan Merguez tagines or even a vegetarian lentil and smoky eggplant stew.
