Chateau Musar Bekaa Valley Red 2017 HALF Bottle (37.5cl)


Red, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon

In stock


An undoubted cult classic: Chateau Musar is one of Lebanon’s most well-known and reputable wine producers. This red is a wonderful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan made using organic methods. A superbly individual and unapologetically austere wine.

TASTING NOTE: Deep ruby in colour. On the nose: lovely red berry fruits, with herb and smoky meaty notes that follow. On the palate: The wine is medium-bodied with a lovely balance between firm tannins, fresh acidity and full fruit flavour of wild herb and a meaty complexity carried to a long finish. 14% alcohol by volume.

FOOD PAIRING, STORING AND SERVICE: This is a great match for roast lamb or game meats, or with warming casseroles and mature cheeses. We would recommend decanting an hour before drinking. Enjoy now until winter 2025.

ABOUT: The estate was founded in 1930 by Gaston Hochar who had travelled widely, including to Bordeaux. His wines soon became well known worldwide, helped by the fact that he became friends with Major Ronald Barton (who owns Chateau Langoa-Barton in Bordeaux) when the British Army was based in Lebanon during the Second World War.  The relationship between the two wine regions has been strong since this time. Gaston’s son Serge helped push Musar’s reputation further but when he died in 2015, the estate was passed to his two sons Gaston and Marc and their cousin Ralph.
