2021 Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, 75cl

Domaine des Tourelles Red

Made with minimal intervention, this is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), Syrah (40%), Cinsault (15%) and Carignan (5%) from 15-20 year old vines grown on sandy limestone with clay sub-soils, the wine is deeply expressive of its roots. Explosive aromas of cherries, cedar wood and rosemary are complimented with a rich, savoury palate combining earthy spice, fine tannins and lingering morello cherry fruit. The wine possesses enormous personality and charm. This is exactly the wine I’d like to have in my glass in front of a roaring fire!

It’s also worth noting that Faouzi Issa, MD and winemaker, an agricultural engineer who went on to study winemaking in France, then spent time working for Domaine Renée Rostaing in the Côte Rôtie, and Château Margaux in Bordeaux. Faouzi returned home to Lebanon in 2008 and took up the reins at Domaine des Tourelles. The combination of knowledge, experience and history shouldn’t be underestimated here.

Behind the bottle: Domaine des Tourelles

Domaine des Tourelles was founded in 1868 by French adventurer François-Eugène Brun and is one of the most highly acclaimed and oldest wineries still operating in Lebanon. It was also the first commercial cellar in ‘modern’ Lebanon to produce wines, arak and other spirits. This place has history! The Brun family owned and ran the winery up until the last descendant died in 2003 but luckily two local families – the Issa and Issa el-Khoury families – joined forces to buy the property and continue the fine tradition of winemaking.

Today, this Bekaa Valley estate is run by the three Issa children – twins Faouzi and Johanne and their sister Christiane, alongside Emile Issa-el Khoury, son of one of the co-owners. This young and dynamic combination have introduced a handful of practices in the vineyards and cellar including the use of indigenous natural yeasts, no fining or filtering, and only very small amounts of sulphur. These techniques along with fruit from 40 hectares of ancient, organically cultivated and dry-farmed vineyards (among the oldest in the valley) and a winery perfect for hands-off winemaking, make Domaine des Tourelles one of the finest boutique wineries in the Middle East.
