Marsyas white 2012


Marsyas, the Kefraya-based winery, is holding a tasting of its White 2012 on Friday 26,18:00-20:00 at Caves Taillevent near Tabaris

I have been able to scrounge a bottle, a blend of Chardonnay/Sauvignon Blanc and, just for you dear readers, am drinking it right now. I can tell that it is utterly magnificent. Crisp and elegant, wonderfully layered and complex. The nose is grown up and restrained but fresh, while in the mouth the balance, acidity, precision and a voluptuous body with layers of pears and apples and never misses a beat from first sip to the finish. My friend Joe Wadsack might say “it’s tighter than the G string on a Les Paul guitar” and he’d be dead right.

The verdict: Without doubt one of, if not the, finest Lebanese white wine on the market today and a wine that has set a new standard in an industry where the whites are getting better and better by the year.

Say you heard it here first!
