Domaine des Tourelles Vieilles Vignes Cinsault 2019

Bekaa, Lebanon, 75cl

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 70 years of age, and fermenting the wines in concrete tanks using wild yeasts and nothing else to offer the purest expression of that grape. The result is a supple wine that beautifully reflects the terroir of the Bekaa Valley, with an ageing potential of several years.The nose has an exotic mix of ripe fig, bright red cherry and plum fruit with star anise spice, it’s lifted and pronounced. The palate has beautifully ripe red fruit characters alongside fig and spice notes. The acidity and tannin perfectly balances the generous flavours and leaves a pure, clean finish.“A very attractive nose, blueberry with redcurrant and garrigue – very enticing. Plenty of herbal garrigue notes on the palate, rosemary and thyme with chalky delineated tannins. Also has some hefty power behind it. Slight gravelly meaty note on the finish. Lots going on here!” - 16 Pts, Alistair Cooper MW for (Tasted Oct 2021)
