Chateau Musar:
Created in 1930 in the cellar of an old 17th century castle, Château Musar is as much the work of a family as the living testimony of all the civilisations that have tread its soil.

Created in 1930 in the cellar of an old 17th century castle, Château Musar is as much the work of a family as the living testimony of all the civilisations that have tread its soil. After a long stay in France, Gaston Hochar returned to Lebanon and created Château Musar in the cellars of the old 'Mzar' castle in Ghazir, overlooking the Mediterranean sea. What began as a hobby soon became a passion; a passion inspired by an initial encounter with renowned viticulturist Ronald Barton while he was stationed in Lebanon during the Second World War.

Serge's younger brother Ronald, named after the late Barton, took over Château Musar's marketing and finance departments in 1962. Read less

Personally i thought this wine was sublime, incredibly aromatic as soon as the cork was popped and even more so when decanted and poured. Sweet and subtle baked fruit flavours give way to long lasting flavours of thyme, perfectly balanced with plenty of ooomph for it's age in its own delicate way. Wish i had some more.
