Chateau Musar Red 2012
Chateau Musar Red 2012 is a vibrantly powerful vintage and cellared well it will keep for decades.
Hochar's cult wine made from Cabernet and Cinsault needs little introduction. The nose is aromatic, fragrant, warm and mellow and it prepares the palate for fruits of cherries, strawberries and redcurrants. The palate is full of these softer summer red berry fruits and combines with soft tannins. Bottle unfined and unfiltered, Chateau Musar Reds are suitable for vegans and require careful decanting. Allow to breathe for several hours and serve with roasted or grilled meat (especially lamb), casseroles, game and mature cheeses.
Without doubt, Chateau Musar is Lebanon’s top wine estate. Established by Gaston Hochar in the 1930s, Chateau Musar has been praised the world over and its wines compared to the likes of fine Bordeaux and Burgundy for their finesse and ability to age. Made world famous by Gaston's son, Serge (Decanter magazine's first 'Man of the Year'), the family continue to make fantastic wines.
