When Frenchman François-Eugène Brun laid the foundation stone of Domaine des Tourelles in Chtaura back in 1868, he couldn’t have known that he had just begun to write the marvelous story of Lebanese wine.
This wine seduces with exotic fruit and floral aromas on the nose which follow through on the palate, with a juicy and mouth-watering finish. Enjoy with a variety of Mediterranean nibbles from Lebanese Mezze to Spanish tapas.
