External Reviews for Château Ksara White Blend Blanc de Blancs
The pre-eminently best keeping wine; the Château Rouge is the proud result of a distinguished alliance of Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot, cultivated in oak casks for 18 months.

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.
