Ixsir Altitudes Cabernet Sauvignon-Caladoc 2010, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
The name gives it away, but even so, it’s surprising to think of this wine grown a thousand metres up in the mountains. Here, the Mediterranean warmth becomes ski-resort cool at night giving this wine real verve and bright spice. It’s like a Bordeaux with Chateauneuf-du-Pape’s warm and earthy charm. And delicious.
