PRODUCTION These 20-25 year old vines are located in West Bekaa, 1050m above sea level. Vine density is 3.500 vines/ha. Grapes are 100% manually harvested with intensive selection. Traditional vinification in concrete vats, the alcoholic fermentation takes 10 days to finish then the malolactic fermentation begins spontaneously. The wine is blended then aged in French and American oak barrels for 8 months.
TASTING NOTE A nose of ripe stonefruit, vanilla and a touch of hazelnut complexity. The palate is rich with bright, slightly exotic fruit flavours and cinnamon. The wine has enough acidity to provide balance and the finish is long, nutty and elegant. This is unique and rewarding Chardonnay.
FOOD MATCH Chicken in a creamy sauce or grilled veal chops with mushroom.
