Winemaker Notes

The 2010 vintage has a rich nose of red fruits, cherries, cooked plums, black currants and blueberries with a hint of violets coming from the Syrah. These fruit characters follow through to the rich, warm palate which is also full of cinnamon, nutmeg and Christmas spices. This wine with its velvety soft tannins and long, warm finish is best enjoyed in its youth (in contrast to the Chateau Musar bottling, which is not released until its seventh year).

Perfect with roasted and grilled meats, spicy Mediterranean dishes, casseroles and mature hard cheeses. Enjoy straight from the bottle (no need to decant) and serve at room temperature.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 88
Wine Enthusiast
Notes of ripe red berries and plums permeate the nose and palate of this bold, concentrated blend of Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a rich texture, and it offers a flurry of soft tannins and hints of spice and graham cracker that linger on the finish.

Chateau Musar, Lebanon
Image of 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. The Hochar family’s philosophy of respect for the environment means that the 180 hectares of Musar vineyards are managed with minimal human interference and all the wines are made naturally.

Chateau Musar was founded in 1930 by Gaston Hochar. In 1959, after studying oenology at the University of Bordeaux, his son Serge became winemaker. The civil war that tore Lebanon apart from 1975 to 1990 did not defeat Chateau Musar; Serge refused to abandon the wine, and lost only the 1976 and 1984 vintages to the war. Owing to his inspiring determination and grand passion for his wines, Serge received the inaugural “Man of the Year Award” from Decanter magazine in 1984. Recognition from Michael Broadbent, at the 1979 Bristol Wine Fair, threw Musar into the international spotlight and helped create a cult-like following. Chateau Musar is one of the most written-about and discussed wines in the world today.

The wine world is vast and constantly expanding. With shifts in climate, fashion, and technology, new regions are constantly developing and experimenting to learn which varieties work best on which vineyard sites. Often, since these regions have yet to gain worldwide popularity, they are great sources for the savvy consumer looking to try something new and interesting at a budget-friendly price.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
