External Reviews for Château Ksara Red Blend Réserve du Couvent
Ksara Estate lies in the heart of the Bekaa Valley near Baalbeck, where the ruins of the Temple of Bacchus from the Greco-Roman era can be found. It is called Ksara because it was the site of a ksar or fortress at the time of the Crusades. The property was acquired by the Jesuits in 1857 when it was already famed as a vineyard, and they maintained the tradition of winemaking on the estate. Climatic conditions in the Bekaa provide Ksara's vineyards with exceptional advantages. There is almost no rainfall during the growing season and diseases seldom strike the vines. Their grapes can be considered to be grown organically because pesticides and herbicides are not used. Harvesting is done by hand, but there is no need for selection because the grapes achieve full ripeness without fear of rot. Château Ksara is the largest producer in the Lebanon with 334 hectares and 38% of the local production. Grapes: Syrah (5...
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. This dark ruby wine exhibits the fruit of Cabernet Sauvignon with the spice of Syrah and Cinsault. It is matured for 6 months in oak, giving a wine with good berried fruit, complemented by vanilla and a roundness on the palate.
