Description

Chateau St Thomas Les Emirs

Chateau St Thomas Les Emirs is powerful and full of flavour. Deep ruby red colour. Intense fruity bouquet of red and black fruits with vanilla, liquorice and sweet spice nuances. Ripe blackberry, plum, cassis and dark cherry flavours emerge in the mouth along with layers of vanilla, oak, tobacco and pepper. Complex and noble character on the full-bodied palate with elegant tannins, a lively acidity and excellent finish.

Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Syrah. From vineyards on a hill overlooking the Bekaa valley with an altitude of over 1000 metres, spreading over 65 hectares on the eastern exposure of Mount Lebanon. The Meditteranean climate is ideal for grape growing and the soils are a superficial, well-draining mixture of limestone and pebbly clay.
After manual harvesting of the grapes, they are brought to their cellar (dug 25m to 30m deep into the rocks) for fermentation and ageing. Fermentation occurs in thermo-regulated steel tanks and the wine then ages for 12 months in oak barriques. Final bottle refinement for 6–8 months before release.
Top tip: Decant for an hour before serving!
