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. Endowed with a charming ruby color, it will reveal its harmonious fullness when accompanying game, red meat and dressed meals. 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.

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.
