A classic Chardonnay, grown at altitude, fermented and aged sur lie and in new oak. Full-bodied, complex, fresh, and creamy with citrus, stone fruit, and savoury notes, the wine is the highest example of the Château Ksara’s white wine-making expertise. Ready to drink now or can be laid down for ageing. Serve slightly chilled

Fermentation in a combination of new and one-year-old French oak for ten months with regular batonage (lees stirring).

Chardonnay Cuvée du Pape can be drunk immediately or cellared for up to 15 years, during which time it will develop more complex, tertiary characteristics that highlight the
harmony of the acidity and the alcohol, as well as its texture and the oak integration.

Winery

Ksara's vineyards are located in the central and western Bekaa Valley at an average altitude of 1,000 meters above sea level. The Bekaa Valley enjoys dry summers and has its natural water table, courtesy of the melting snow running off the Lebanon and Anti-Lebanon mountain ranges. Cool nights help the vineyards withstand the summer's heat and drought. The vines are either double Guyot or cordon trained and are grown in stony soils, which are predominantly chalk. The vineyard is not irrigated, and the standard yield is between 40 and 45 hectolitres per hectare. The grapes can be considered to be grown organically because of the very limited use of sulfur-based pesticides.
