Gold Reserve Red 2010, Massaya, Beqaa Valley

Gold Reserve Red 2010, Massaya, Beqaa Valley

Ref: A180810

he blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Mourvèdre & 10% Syrah.
The vines are 20 years old on average, and planted at 900-1,200 metres above sea level.
The hand picked grapes were sorted on tables and fully destemmed. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks or wooden vats, depending on the variety. The wine was aged for 18 months in French oak barriques, then blended a few months before being bottled, unfiltered.

Firm and very elegant aromas of black spice, classic notes of violets and cassis. This is a delicious big chunky red, prominent tannins, and in a serious class of its own. If you’re thinking about cellaring some wine for the future this will not fail in delighting you in a decade. Tasted 14/11/11 FT

A dense, firm red with lots of fruit and hints of spice and mint.

The Ghosn brothers, Sami and Ramzi, were determined to realize their dream by bringing to life great wines at their Tanaïl Property. To do this they decided to bring in priceless know-how to one of the world’s oldest wine producing regions.

On 27 May, 1998, a partnership was formed with an ambition to produce a world class Lebanese wine in the Bekaa Valley. It brought together The Ghosn brothers - Sami and Ramzi - and Dominique Hébrard, owner of Chateau Trianon (and previous owner of Ch Cheval Blanc) and the Brunier brothers, Daniel and Frédéric, co-proprietor at Le Vieux Télégraphe.

The new wine was to have a limited annual production and it was to be called Massaya, named after the time of day when twilight sets on the vineyard and the sky turns purple as the sun sets behind Mount-Lebanon.

This prestigious Franco-Lebanese collaboration has united great men of wine and created optimum conditions for making great wine, taking advantage of the exceptional soil here in the Bekaa.

The vineyards of the Tanaïl Estate are located at an altitude of 1000 meters above sea level in the Bekaa Valley, where the slopes are protected by Mount Lebanon and the Anti -Lebanon mountains. Free of frost and disease, the Bekaa Valley enjoys a unique climate with long gentle summers, wet winters and an average temperature of 25 degrees that is perfect for viticulture.
