Chateau Musar Jeune Rose 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

For half a century, Serge Hochar has been making wines at Chateau Musar, that have become global icons for their ultra distinctive style. Musar Jeune is the new generation of Musar. Inspired by Serges’ famously vibrant and youthful approach to life, the Jeune (‘young’ in French) wines are made for drinking today. Young, fresh, vigorous, unfettered by oak these are wines bursting with classic Musar character. The Jeune wines consist of a white, rose, and red. All the wines are made from the grapes of young Bekaa Valley vineyards, about 1,000 metres above sea level, in accordance with the Hochar family’s philosophy of ‘natural’ winemaking. A medium to light pink rose. The nose is very fruity; strawberry, blueberry with a hint of rosewater. The taste is of fresh red fruits, strawberries and cherries, in harmony with the nose, and with a structured, nice acidity in the long finish.

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. The family's love for wine grew and in 1959, after completing his oenology diploma in Bordeaux, the eldest son, Serge, entered the business. Some call him the magician, the man behind this extraordinary wine. His response is that he only seeks is to translate what nature intended. Serge's younger brother Ronald, named after the late Barton, took over Château Musar's marketing and finance departments in 1962. Read less
