Domaine des Tourelles Red 2018 is a concentrated red wine with expressive aromas of red and black fruit, notes of aromatic herbs and hints of clove. On the palate it’s sweet and subtle. A wine with a very fruity initial flavor, with silky tannins and an elegant finish with delicate smoky hints.

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Domaine des Tourelles Red is a red wine aged in cement made by Domaine des Tourelles from Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault varieties in the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon.

Domaine des Tourelles, one of the most famous and acclaimed wineries in the Bekaa Valley, was founded by the Frenchman François-Eugène Brun in 1868 and soon became one of the pioneering wineries for marketing quality wine in Lebanon. In 2000 the winery was transferred to the descendants of Brun's Lebanese wife, Nayla Kanaan Issa-el-Khoury and Elie F. Issa, and is now run by his sons, a young and dynamic trio who combine modernity with tradition without losing sight of the expression of the exceptional terroirs of the Bekaa Valley.

Bearing in mind that they own some of the oldest vineyards in the Valley, the grapes of Domaine des Tourelles come from vines planted on stony, clayey and loamy soils, at an altitude of 1,050 m above sea level. Respectful agriculture is practiced, yields are limited to 50 hl/ha and the grapes are harvested by hand at the optimum point of ripeness.

In the winery each plot of each grape variety is vinified separately in concrete tanks for 10 days before blending. Then Domaine des Tourelles Red is aged for another 16 months in concrete tanks. Finally it’s bottled with a light filtration.

Using traditional French varieties, Domaine des Tourelles Red is a blend full of flavor and character. A red wine from one of the founding Lebanese wineries which exhibits real class.
