Other Red Blends from Other
A red ruby color with violet reflections. This youthful release, dark and silky-textured, has rich aromas and flavors of blackcurrants, redcurrants, cherries and raspberries. There are soft smooth tannins and a nice long velvety touch full of dark fruits at the end.
Blend: 50% Cinsault, 30% Syrah, 20% Cabernet-Sauvignon
Wine Enthusiast - "Gorgeous on the nose with a blast of fresh red fruit, violets and smoke, Musar's Jeune is unabashed in its youth and verve compared to the more austere Gaston Hochar line. The palate boasts the same deeply concentrated fruit, but with a freshness and acidity that lingers to a smoky, leather-accented finish."
Chateau Musar Winery
The wines of Chateau Musar are unique expressions from a country with an ancient winemaking culture, as vines have been cultivated from Lebanon's high altitude Bekaa Valley for over 6,000 years.
In 1930, at just 20 years old, Gaston Hochar founded Chateau Musar, inspired by Lebanon's 6,000 year winemaking tradition and his travels in Bordeaux. His 'wines with noblesse' greatly impressed senior officers in the army following on from the French mandate of the 1920s. Major Ronald Barton, of Chateau Langoa-Barton, stationed in Lebanon during World War II became a great friend, strengthening the links between Chateau Musar and Bordeaux that remain to this day.
