Chateau Musar

Chateau Musar

Ref: A180106

Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan. A very Bordeaux feeling vintage - black cherries, figs, damsons-even chocolate and olives. Superbly balanced. For drinking now or cellaring.

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.
