Blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, Cinsault
Chateau Musar 2015
The Hoshar family arrived in Lebabnon from France, in the 16th Century and since 1930 have produced one of the most iconic wines in the world.
Seven years in the making, Chateau Musar Red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault from vineyards near the Bekaa Valley villages of Aana and Kefraya on gravelly soils over limestone. Planted from the 1930s onwards, yields are low from these mature bushvines (average age: 40 years): Between 15 to 35hl per hectare.
The 2015 was a tricky vintage and yields were extremely low but the resultant wine is beautiful.
Deep ruby colour and an aroma of fresh hedgerow berries – bramble, blackcurrant and cherry, also more complexity
coming through later with leather and delicate, peppery-spice notes. The flavours are similar, with some soft vanilla,
warming spice and a cocoa note.
Fresh acidity and supple tannins make the wine a perfect accompaniment to richer, fattier
meats like duck or a ribeye steak
