The vision behind IXSIR is to reveal the best terroirs of Lebanon, some long since forgotten. Cultivated with respect to sustainable agriculture, IXSIR ’s vineyards are spread across the mountains of Lebanon on clay-calcareous and limestone soil, from Batroun to Jezzine, benefiting from microclimates that are unique to Lebanon. IXSIR ’s vineyards culminate at an altitude of 1,800 meters, making them the highest in the Northern Hemisphere.

Tasting Notes: A complexity of aromas with red fruits, blackberry liqueur, touches of incense, and notes of mint and cedar sap. The palate is enriched by a suave and intense nose of rich mineral tension that is characteristic of limestone terroirs. A fresh finish and an extended length reveal a mature aging aptitude.
