      Tasting Notes and Description
      The Bargylus winery is precisely located near the town of Deir Touma, which literally means "Convent of Thomas", not far from the last vestiges of the Crusader era and the illustrious Saladin.

      Typically Mediterranean, Bargylus elegantly combines strength and finesse: the aromatic range is defined by fresh fruit and minerality transmitted from very stony soils. Domaine de Bargylus is managed by two brothers Karim and Sandro Saadé, with the assistance of renowned consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt. It has been cited by wine critic Jancis Robinson as "arguably the finest wine of the Eastern Mediterranean"

      In the mouth, the balance between the sweetness from a full maturity, a generous sun and the salinity from the limestone, allows Bargylus to transmit the strong identity of the terroir and an inimitable taste.

      "The growing season began with a usefully rainy winter then a mild spring and quite a hot summer but harvest didn’t begin until 8 September and extended into October for the Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine was aged for 14 months in French barriques of roughly equal portions of new, second-use and third use-barrels. I can’t really imagine how the heck they manage to ship into Syria from French coopers… The blend for 2014 is 60% Syrah with 20% each of Merlot and Cabernet but it is very much an integrated blend rather than showing any particular varietal character.

      The wine is as intense as you would expect from an emissary from the arid land of the crusades, with the fragrance of balsam and savoury spices plus a top note of some dried herbs, but it manages to remain wonderfully fresh and appetising on the finish too after intense, ripe, quite complex fruit. Eastern promise indeed! I really don’t think many people would be disappointed by what this wine has to offer. It is 14.6% alcohol but is chock-full of flavour. I gave it 17 points out of 20 and suggest a drinking window of 2019 to 2029. This is serious wine to be enjoyed with food. It’s also relatively – surprisingly? – easy to find."
