Chateau Musar was founded in 1930 by Gaston Hochar. In 1959, Serge Hocher became winemaker while he completed his winemaking studies at the 「University of Oenology」in Bordeaux. And he finalized the formula of Musar red wine and kept making fine wine from Lebanese Civil War . The wine of Chateau Musar are unique expressions with an ancient wine-making culture, all the vines have been cultivated from lebanon’s very high altitude Bekaa Valley over 6000 year’s old.

The wine has a mature, browning colour. The nose is mature, with polished oak furniture. After aeration, some raspberry and strawberry fruit become evident. The palate is notably mature, no doubt, and the attack reminds me of old wardrobe doors with nice, sweet, evolved fruit. But there’s also a certain vibrancy in there. Some sweet, remarkably young-feeling fruit comes along. There’s a streak of really pure, fresh fruit in there. Remarkable wine. Very complex flavours. I reckon there is still enough structure to see this through a couple more decades., London International Wine Fair, May 2009
