Château Ksara Rouge 2010
WHAT THE TEAM HAS TO SAY:
A charming full-bodied Bordeaux style blend that is complex, yet majestic at the same time. Complex in the fact that there are just so many layers of delicious primary fruit and secondary oak flavours but is yet so majestic in the manner of this wine being beautifully balanced and exceptional.
Made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot and aged in oak for 18 months, this wine is endowed with charming ruby color and reveals its fullness when paired with game and red meat. Medium-bodied with generous length, it has discreet yet heady notes of fruit, especially blackcurrants with hints of spice.
Chateau Ksara is Lebanon's oldest winery. Its traditions can be traced back to 1857 when a group of Jesuit monks acquired the property. The Jesuits applied their knowledge of science and agriculture to plant French vines as well as developing two kilometers of Roman caves that proved ideal for the storage of wine. The Jesuits sold the winery to its current owners in 1973. Ksara is now the most modern winery in the region as well as the largest producer in the country. Their annual production is over 2.8 million bottles and they sell their wines in more than 40 countries worldwide. Chateau Ksara is certified ISO 9001 and ISO 2200.00 for its viticulture, production and sales guaranteeing quality and consistency year on year.
