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.

The look has nice golden hue, the nose is powerful with honey and lactic scents, the pallet is round buttery but the end is very short and without any kind of crispiness or edge. The aromas are kind of oxidized. The bright side is the aromatic nose but the pallet is disappointing. All in all the wine is well preserved for a 8 years wine but the lack of pleasure rapidly turns it into a frustating experience

Made from old vines (60 years average) Obaideh - an indigenous white grape variety that's related to Chardonnay. This is grown in a very mountainous terrain, facing the sea at 3,500 feet above sea level. Very floral with pine and yellow plums on the palate. Reminiscent of French Roussanne.

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.

Château Musar's Blanc is every bit as interesting as their rouge. This is a delightful, dry white wine made from old vines of the Obaideh. The aromas are intriguing with spice, yellow plums and nuts.

Vintage: 1993 05/21/2011

The slightly oxidised character of Hochar’s white wines may intimidate some, as well the indigenous, unfamiliar sounding grape varietals. For the lover of the obscure, it is a delight. The grapes must travel 30 miles from the vineyard to the winery, which contributes to the unique qualities of these whites. Merwah is like semillion, golden color and spicy, waxy profile. Obediah is thought to be an ancestor of Chardonnay and lends acidity to the mix. Impeccably kept, we are lucky to have these. The 1993, a medium light gold, with aromas of shy mirabelle plums. Just lovely now - still crisp and lively, with flavors of preserved lemons and pineapples, this is best for an elevated feast of Moroccan cuisine - couscous or tagines.
