Description

Founded in 1930 by Gaston Hochar, the wines of Chateau Musar are unique expressions from a country with an ancient wine-making culture, as vines have been cultivated from Lebanon’s high altitude Bekaa Valley for over 6,000 years. Chateau Musar’s red vineyards are situated towards the southern end of the Bekaa valley, noth of Lake Qaroun and about 30km south-east of Beirut. They lie near the villages of Aana and Kefraya on a range of gravelley soils over limestone: ideally suited to viticulture. Every wine is produced naturally with a “non-interventionist” wine making philosophy and the winery was the first in Lebanon to implement organically certified viticulture in 2006 for its Chateau Musar red and white grapes.

Rich dark red, almost opaque with a hint of violet, Chateau Musar’s ‘Jeune’ has been likened to a fine Roussillon red. Great perfumed red and black fruit intensity with sweet spice aromas. Baked earth and concentrated plum and black cherry, like a baked fruit pie. Richly fruited with an enticing core of black cherry, plums, blackberries and black olives. Fresh acidity and soft integrated tannins. Jeune Red 2018 is a big, ripe wine – soft, fresh and juicy – designed to be enjoyed in its youth.

Serves at: 16-18°C

Food matches: Serve with grills, roasts, casseroles, delicatessen meats and mature cheeses.
