Winemaker Notes

The wine has a beautiful rich scarlet color with an alluring nose of black and red fruits, cherries, coffee, leather and cloves. A good natural intensity with well integrated tannins and good acidity –this is a rich, warm, concentrated vintage of Chateau Musar showing an abundance of fruit, energy and considerable finesse. Mature and balanced with a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 90
Decanter
Restrained nose hints at strawberry, shoepolish, aromatic herbs and tar, then fruitier on the palate with a noteworthy tannic bite. The mainly red fruit character hints at the Cinsalut presence (roughly 33% of the blend). Slightly one-dimensional at present needs a few more years to show all its full potential, like all Musars. This is the first release of Chateau Musar since the great Serge Hochar, Decanter's first ever Man of the Year.

Chateau Musar, Lebanon
Chateau Musar Bekaa Valley Winery Image
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.
