Established in 1930, today Château Musar is run by the third generation of the Hochar family with vineyards at 1000 meters above sea level in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley.
A blend of equal proportions Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan, hand harvested from organic vineyards. Fermented with natural yeasts, given minimal sulphur additions, the wines are aged for 12 months in French oak barrels before blending. Bottled without fining or filtration in the third year. As such, natural sediments will occur, and we suggest decanting. The 2003 vintage shows a balance of rich, ripe fruit as well as the complex aromas and flavours that come from bottle age.
The ideal partner to grilled meats or vegetables, but especially good with seasonal flavours of game and wild mushroom. It is equally suited to mature cheese – comte, parmesan or a good cheddar.
