Presents an elegant swirl of golden glittering robes. Breathing an exquisite bouquet of floral aromas with hints of Muscat and notes of grapefruit, this floral and fruity blend translates into a balanced and sharp palate hinted with spicy undertones. A soft touch of acidity gives the wine a pleasant freshness. Great aperitif style white. A crowd pleaser. This blend of a Lebanese indigenous grape and two noble southern varieties, Muscat and Viognier. Hubert Dubois is the winemaker from Chateau Angelus in Bordeaux.

Located at around 1800m above sea level, Ixsir is one of the tallest vineyards in the world. This name comes from the word, Iksir, which is the Arabic word for elixir. In short, the word, Ixsir means something that is pure and elegant. There couldn’t have been a better word than this for the wines created from the best terroirs of Lebanon.

Ranging from the areas of Batroun to Jezzine, the vineyards of Ixsir are surrounded by scenic mountains all around. Diverse soil types (clay, lime, and calcareous) along with the microclimate of the place makes it ideal for growing grapes that are known for their richness, complexity, elegance and purity.

The vineyards of Ixsir are spread across the entire area of Lebanon from north to south. Close to 250 families participate in the vine cultivation process here. These families practice sustainable agricultural and winemaking methods to ensure that there is no intervention at all during the entire process.
