Product Description

Marvellously warm Mediterranean fruits on the nose, would be autumnal but for their vigorous presence, as rich and robust as expected on the palate, almost the essence of Lebanon in the glass with rich spice and cooling breezes, the dry herby fruit flows with energy over the palate before giving way to a finish that confirms the structure, fruit and tannins blending in exuberantly with intriguing hints of much more to come in the next decade - Steven Spurrier, January 2020

…one of the best young Musars we have tasted. Already drinkable for its richness and sweet fruit, but don't underestimate its ability age: this has 3 decades of development ahead of it – Richard Ballantyne MW, April 2020

Chateau Musar was founded in an 18th century castle in Ghazir by Gaston Hochar (pronounced Oh-Shar) in 1930 in the Bekaa Valley some 15 miles north of Beirut in the Lebanon. The vineyards are some 1000m up and Gaston spotted the suitability of the climate for the growing of classical varieties such as Cabernet-Sauvignon and Cinsault. The estate is now run by his sons Serge and Roland.

You have to admire what this family has achieved - especially prior to the ceasefire in 1990. Anyone who goes on making fine wine whilst bombs are falling around their estate surely deserves a medal.

A deep crimson – even blood red colour with an intense and complex nose of spicy red fruits, cedar with deeper plum notes. Generous red and black fruits follow through to the palate combined with Christmas cake spices, figs, dates and stewed plums. Good acidity, silky tannins with a rich fruited palate end with a long promising finish.
