Chateau Musar, blanc, 2010
Château Musar Blanc comes from two ancient native varieties that grow in the Bekaa Valley. The Obaideh variety grows at the foot of the hill on rocky and calcareous soils and the Merwah is planted on the hill on calcareous gravel soils at an altitude of 1,400 metres. They are cultivated using traditional agriculture and the harvest is low-yield but high-quality.
Château Musar Blanc is a mature white wine with intense aromas of ripe white fruits, citrus fruits and nuts. On the palate it is creamy, rich and dry with seductive notes and a long and persistent finish.
Chateau Musar, Rouge, 1998
This is a Cinsault dominated wine eminates from a fairly cool vintage thus it is elegant with plenty of finesse. It has good depth on the palate with some developed notes of game and a good acidity. Although it is not a heavy wine, it has good staying power on the palate and will be very pleasing to Bordeaux drinkers and Lebasnese lovers alike.
Chateau Musar, Rouge, 2000
The colour is a deep dark red, perhaps darker than usual at Chateau Musar. The nose is a complex intriguing mixture of figs, prunes, leather, dark tea, tobacco, black olives and spices with a certain earthiness. On the palate you will find ripe black cherries, figs, damsons – even chocolate and olives. There is good acidity with nice smooth tannins resulting in a wine which is full bodied, rich and velvety with a very long finish.
