About

Chateau Ksara is delighted to release for sale a limited quantity of the 1996 Cuvée du Pape, created to commemorate the visit to Lebanon in May 1997 of His Holiness Pope John Paul. Cuvée du Pape is made with 100% Chardonnay in the classic Burgundian style, aged sur lie for six months in new oak. Since the first vintage, this wine – the first Lebanese Chardonnay varietal – has attracted a global following, one that appreciates its phenomenal aging ability, retaining acidity and primary fruit, but also developing complimentary flavours and aromas of honey, nuts, brioche and toast to create a beautifully-balanced wine that perfectly expresses the Bekaa Valley’s high-altitude terroir.
This is an opportunity to acquire one of the great Lebanese white wines of the modern era.
