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. 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

Delicate, mature aromas and flavors of dried cherry, currant, plum and berry make for a sumptuous and supple red. The long finish is filled with clove and ginger, with hints of cola. Equal parts Cinsault, Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now. 2... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from in Lebanon. 2001 Chateau Musar Lebanon 750ml

The 2001 CHATEAU MUSAR, bottled in 2004, is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan, aged for one year in French oak. Nuanced by cherries and spice, it is quite delicious.

Vintage: 1993 05/21/2011

A rarified find. Fragile garnet color with a crushed-in-the-sand blood orange nose. The body of Serge Hochar’s 1993 is quite sturdy, due to the dominant percentage of Carignan. A wine that is showing beautifully now, with a certain delicacy and earthiness different than that seen in Western Europe or the New World. Gaston Hochar, a Francophile and the Chateau’s father, realized French vines work exceptionally well in the Bekaa Valley. He modeled his wines after the best he experienced, while holding true to Lebanese culture
