Review Domaine des Tourelles 2019 Cinsault Vieilles Vignes, Bekka Valley, Lebanon
Domaine des Tourelles 2019 Cinsault Vieilles Vignes, Bekka Valley, Lebanon
($25.99 Incl. tax)
Aromas of dried flowers, herbs and fruit are followed by a medium bodied, fresh wine with lots of dark red fruit and character. François-Eugène Brun came from France, and fell in love the Bekaa Valley where he set up the first winery in Lebanon in 1868.
Cinsault has been farmed in the Bekaa Valley since the mid-19th century before ceding the way to new imported varieties. In 2014, Domaine des Tourelles decided to revive this grape by searching out very old Cinsault vines, over 50 years of age, and fermenting the wines in concrete tanks using wild yeasts and nothing else to offer the purest expression of that grape. François-Eugène Brun, who came from France, fell in love with this area of the Bekaa Valley where he set up the first winery in Lebanon in 1868.
