La Cave de Joël Robuchon introduces Bargylus Red Wine 2009

I attended last Thursday, to a wine tasting of an exquisite item “Bargylus Red Wine 2009″, at La Cave de Joel Robuchon in Beirut Souks, part of a concept store based in Paris.


“Bargylus Red Wine 2009” is a vintage produced by The Johnny R.Saadé family.

Inspired by their father who was passionate about wine, Karim & Sandro Saadé started their adventure. “We are going to do it right here in our own country” say Saadé brothers. They revived the vineyard that was planted by the Romans 2000 years ago, in Syria and, “The Promised Land” of the Lebanese vineyard, Bekaa valley.

The Bargylus Reds strike a perfect balance of strength, finesse and elegance, allying a floral and spicy nose with a fine, close-grained texture and expressive purity of fruit, which will be added to the finest wine collection of La Cave de Joël Robuchon, where wine lovers can experience real indulgence.

The boutique is the creation of Joël Robuchon, one of the most esteemed chefs in France and includes a fine selection of wines pre-approved by Robuchon himself.

Through a partnership with fawaz Holding, this concept store, which has long been synonymous with outstanding value and quality of wines selection, was developed within the same spirit in Beirut.


I met there, one the best food bloggers in Lebanon, Cynthia from Strawberry Blu and we both tasted the white wine, it was soft, light & refreshing in the summer heat. We also had the opportunity to mingle with La Cave de Joël Robuchon team and check the wine selection…

It was a nice experience!

If you’re a wine lover and shopping in Beirut Souks, you have to check The Cave!
