Browse by Country - Lebanon

One of the oldest wine producing countries in the world although now most of the wine made is exported (Château Musar exports 95% of its production).

Most of the wine is grown in the Bekaa Valley whose microclimate, provided by the sheltering mountains either side, permits the vines to ripen in early September. Some vineyards can, however, be found in the Lebanese mountains.

Demand for wine inevitably decreased during the Beirut war. Despite this Serge Hochar of Château Musar continued to produce wine, sometimes defying the most adverse conditions (such as having to pull shrapnel out of the grapes prior to vinification in one vintage!). Only one vintage of Musar was missed, 1984, because of the war, and even though Serge’s vineyards and winery are separated by a range of mountains winemaking continued, sometimes with the winery’s cellars being used as air raid shelters! Other important Lebanese producers are Kefraya and Ksara.

The grapes grown for wine in the Lebanon are very much influenced by French winemaking. They include Cinsaut, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Semillon and Chardonnay.

Body: d - Medium to Full

NOTE THIS IS A HALF BOTTLE (37.5CL)
The cooler 1998 has an elegant Cinsault dominance; the colour is lighter and more delicately perfumed than a typical vintage. Despite this initial impression, the wine is deceptively powerful with a vibrant acidity and fresh, soft red fruit flavours and a very long, spicy finish. The ideal partner to mushroom and game dishes.

Body: d - Medium to Full

Deep ruby colour and an aroma of fresh hedgerow berries - bramble, blackcurrant and cherry, also more complexity coming through later with leather and delicate, peppery-spice notes. The flavours are similar, with some soft vanilla, warming spice and a cocoa note. Fresh acidity and supple tannins make the wine a perfect accompaniment to richer, fattier meats like duck or a ribeye steak.

Chateau Musar 2016
Lebanon

Body: d - Medium to Full
Drink now, but will keep

The 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.
The 2016 harvest showed without a doubt, that global warming is causing higher annual temperatures and at the same time, successive years of low rainfall have resulted in drier soils. Clearly, these factors may affect maturation of the grapes as well as the wine-making process but for 2016, with the much needed rainfall and almost perfect climatic conditions, we have high expectations for this vintages’ future for decades to come.

This famous cabernet, cinsault and carignan wine from Lebanon is particularly exotic in 2007. Lower yields and a summer heatwave resulted in a wine which rests its quality on power, muscle and concentrated dark fruit and spice

Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan (Mazuelo) (Samso), Cinsaut/Cinsault
Drink now, but will keep

The 2017 vintage looks to be very promising indeed, the wines of this year are unique, yet retaining classical Chateau Musar character. Three factors come to our minds, the similarity in style of the different decades ending in 7, the taste of the last vineyard of Cabernet Sauvignon harvested and powerful aromas. It has a bright ruby colour and there are sweet red cherries, mulberries and plums on the nose with a hint of tea tree and liquorice. The tannins are soft and well-integrated and this vintage has good acidity, depth of fruit and a long finish. Cellared well, it will age beautifully for decades.
