Chateau Musar Red 2016
Chateau Musar Red 2016, like many previous vintages, is a complex and uniquely powerful wine. Cellared well it will keep for decades - if you can resist it!
"Our 2016 vintage is deep ruby in colour with high viscosity. Red cherries, plums, carob and figs dominate the nose with a hint of eastern spice. Kirsch and plums follow through to the palate with blackcurrant and chocolate. The tannins are velvety soft and this wine has a lot of depth and fruit concentration with a long finish."
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.
