Chateau Musar White Blend Blanc 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

The Chateau Musar Blanc has a bright golden straw colour with a nose of almonds, cashew nuts, hot buttery toast, I brulee and honey. Rich warm toasty honey flavours on the palate together with fragrant herbs and spiced apples result in a very complex, rich and mellow wine. Grape varieties? Obaideh and Merwah, native to Lebanon.

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

We drank this in 2011. The color of this wine is deep and a beautiful gold. The nose is crazy complex and a bit of a head scratcher. There's a bit of oxidation (but way less than I expected) and baked apples and a little nuttiness. What is puzzling is an almost menthol note on the nose that cuts right through the richness. Puzzling. On the palate it's wonderfully balanced with fruit notes, crisp acidity, and a rich mouthfeel. It's all very contradictory. You have the same baked apples and white nuttiness, rich body but with a crisp finish.

From old vine Obaideh, Ch. Musar once again releases a wine of intrigue and beauty; with apricot and almond nose and honey on the palate, this white only needs a slight chill before serving.
