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.
Dark shaded ruby; this is just the sort of colour I would expect from a 1970 red Bordeaux. Light, very Cabernet nose. If I were given this blind I would be extremely tempted to head straight for Bordeaux, though it would have to be a comely château such as Palmer perhaps, and a fairly ripe vintage. Perhaps 1961?! But then there is probably more sweetness and a bit more exoticism than one would find in a Bordeaux of this evident age… Mouth-filling and again that note of violets, candied this time. A little dusting of tannins on the end. Lovely wine – Jancis Robinson, March 2018
