Syrah du Liban Grande Cuvée

40,12 inc. VAT

GRAPES: Syrah (100%).

Syrah is a typical grape of the Mediterranean region. In Lebanon’s unique terroir the wine manages to combine elegant floral notes with an explosive spicy character on the nose and palate. It is wonderfully balanced and has a long, persistent finish. A big wine that would benefit from some additional time in cellar or decanting prior to serving.

Serving: It is recommended to serve Syrah du Liban at around 18°C (64°F) to fully appreciate its complex aromas and flavors.

Pairing: Syrah du Liban from Domaine des Tourelles is a big wine that would pair well with bold and flavorful dishes such as grilled meats, game meats, or stews with rich and spicy sauces. It could also pair well with aged cheeses.

Tasting note: On the nose, Syrah du Liban from Domaine des Tourelles presents elegant floral notes along with an explosive spicy character. The palate is complex and well-structured, with flavors of blackberries, black cherries, and spices, as well as subtle hints of vanilla and toast from the oak aging. The wine is wonderfully balanced and has a long, persistent finish.

The wine is then aged in all new American oak barrels for 24 months, allowing the wine to develop a deep and complex flavor profile.
