The Chateau Musar Experience Case
The Chateau Musar Experience Case
Enjoy The Chateau Musar Experience case with three bottles each of the following wines;
2017 Chateau Musar Rouge, Bekaa Valley
"As you know, Musar only ever releases its grand vin once it's deemed ready to drink and this is bang on song. A balance of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan, fermented in concrete tanks and aged in oak for a year before blending, it's full of fresh and dried autumnal red/dark fruit, herbs, spice, coffee, leather and tobacco."
2017 Chateau Musar Blanc, Bekaa Valley
"Its hard to know with what to compare it, weaving as it does between dry white Bordeaux, white Rioja, white Rhône and even Manzanilla sherry in style. If you enjoy such wines and are bored with Chardonnay, say, or single varietal Sauvignon Blanc, then this oak-fermented blend of two indigenous varieties Obaideh and Merwah will be right up your alley. Its full and rich but dry, slightly oxidative and touched with honey, nuts, succulent citrus and something enticingly savoury on the finish. Its distinctive and delicious."
2020 Musar Jeune Rouge, Bekaa Valley
"The 2020 Musar Jeune Red , with its oscillopsia-inducing, Timothy Leary-designed label (only joshing, dunno who came up with it but poor Mrs Ray said it made her eyes hurt), is Musars entry level red, designed to be knocked back with abandon. An unoaked blend of Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, its fresh, fruity and easy-going and full of juicy, spicy bramble fruit. Its a sort of hybrid Côtes du Rhône Villages/Bordeaux Supérieur and really jolly good."
2019 Hochar Pere et Fils Rouge, Chateau Musar, Bekaa Valley
"The 2019 Hochar Pere et Fils Red is the stepping stone between the above and the grand vin, a Cru Bourgeois in quality, lets say. A blend of old vine, low-yielding Cinsault, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon from high in the Bekaa Valley, its aged in French oak for six months and is serious fare. There are complex cherries, blackcurrants, pepper, spice and heady herbs and there are tannins too, but so gentle and subtle that they add to rather than take away from the enjoyment."
