Musar Jeune Red 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Without doubt, Chateau Musar is Lebanon’s top wine estate. Established by Gaston Hochar in the 1930s, Chateau Musar has been praised the world over and its wines compared to the likes of fine Bordeaux and Burgundy for their finesse and ability to age. Made world famous by Gaston's son, Serge (Decanter magazine's first 'Man of the Year'), the family continue to make fantastic wines. Inspired by Serge's famously vibrant and youthful approach to life, the Jeune (‘young’ in French) wines are made for drinking today. The Red has a bright violet colour with a nose of blueberries, violets, red cherries and red berry fruits. The palate is very fresh and fruity with blueberries, blackcurrants and red plums. This well balanced wine with its fruit concentration, soft tannins and long, warm finish is best enjoyed in its youth. There’s no need to decant - enjoy with grills, roasts, casseroles, delicatessen meats, Mediterranean cuisine and mature cheeses. Drink now.

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
