2021 Massaya Classic Rosé


Massaya is managed by the Ghosn brothers in collaboration with Frédéric and Daniel Brunier from Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe and Dominique Hebrard, who was previously at Château Cheval Blanc. Situated in the verdant Bekaa Valley, at an elevation of 1000 meters above sea level, these Tanaïl vineyards benefit from the shelter of Mount Lebanon and the Anti-Lebanon mountains, creating ideal growing conditions.

Free of frost and disease the Bekaa Valley enjoys a unique climate with long gentle summers, wet winters and an average temperature of 25ºC, perfect for viticulture.

The grapes for this rosé are handpicked from the hillsides of Beqaa Valley, situated at altitudes of 900 to 1200 metres above sea level. The vineyard spans across an area of 19 acres and is planted in chalky clay soil and subsoil. The vines have an average age of 30 years, ensuring the highest quality grapes.

Grapes are hand-picked and conveyed in crates. Direct pressing with a pneumatic press, static settling, and fermentation in stainless-steel vats.

Tasting Note: A gorgeous strawberry colour, with aromas of red berry fruits and subtle spice. Beautiful freshness thanks to vineyards’ altitude.

Origin: Bekaa Valley, Lebanon

Blend: Cinsault

Massaya is run by Sami and Ramzi Ghosn in collaboration with Frédéric and Daniel Brunier from Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe, and Dominique Hebrard, formerly of Château Cheval Blanc.

Its vineyards in the Beqaa Valley, standing 1000 metres above sea level, are tucked behind Mount Lebanon and the Anti-Lebanon mountains. There's a mild climate - averaging 25ºC, with wet winters and long summers - allowing for grapes that flourish.

They have ventured into more extreme, mineral lands to the North East (Ras Baalbek), North West (Hadath Baalbek) and even further north of Baalbek, to cultivate Grenache and Mourvèdre for their reds, and Obeidi, Clairette, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Vermentino for whites.

Massaya, in Lebanese, translates to “twilight” but at the specific moment the sun sets behind Mount Lebanon and the sky of the Bekaa turns dark blue with a hue similar to the blue bottle of arak - a spirit made by the family - that was their first step into alcohol.

Sami and Ramzi expanded beyond arak, with the help of some French domaines, It took several years for the Ghosns and their French partners to detect the right terroirs, grape varieties, and principles behind the business. They settled on a devotion to the environment and a dedication to quality.
