Perseides is the absolute top of this domain. On site in Zahlé we were lucky enough to taste different vintages of this wine. We were instantly happy with every sip. The name Perseides comes from the shooting stars that can be seen from the Bekaa valley around August 12 every year. The main grape for this wine is Syrah, which is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. After a manual harvest, which is done with great care and respect, the wine is left in barrel for 18 months. 40% of this goes in new oak barrels and 60% in second-year barrels of French Allier oak. This wine is pure strength and has incredible aging potential. In the nose, these wines give us a wide palette of aromas, from red peppers, terroir expression, cassis, forest scents and so much more. On the palate, there is first a hint of ripe bilberries and cassis, before turning to green pepper and strong tannins that are very balanced. Only 2500 bottles of this wine are produced per year. It is without a doubt one of our favorites from the country where “Bacchus” the wine god has his temple. health!
