Chardonnay from Lebanon

I will never forget how unique this wine tasted. Ksara’s “Cuvée du Pape” Chardonnay was wild, like an untamed colt. The bouquet was horsey and sweaty, possibly from a bit of Brettanomyces. Wild savory herbs. The taste was toasty, warm spice. Almost like a fine champagne with no bubbles. Enigmatically wild and raw with a fine velvet lining, and an enjoyable rewarding wine. Thank you to Ziryab in Barcelona for this special treat!
