Château Ksara Red Blend Cuvée 3eme Millenaire 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Over the past decade, Ksara has seen the introduction of new grape varieties that have grown into vines that the Bekaa valley has blissfully nurtured. Ksara has also seen developments in techniques such as vine cultivation on wires and the attentive application of advanced science by French oenologists, who watch over the vinification, fermentation and decanting processes. Today, the wines of Ksara have a specific character, described as a “rare balance of dry fruitiness, of delicacy and coarseness, and of freshness and vigour.” They are the new image of a deliberately international vineyard and producer. Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot, matured separately in oak for 18 months, this wine has a fruity character of raspberries, blackcurrants with a little vanilla and has a complex, rich flavour.

Nowadays, Chateau Ksara has 90% of its vineyards production as noble grapes. Read less
