Château Musar

Musar Jeune Rouge Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2011

Gaston Hochar founded Château Musar estate in Lebanon in 1930; his Bordeaux-trained son Serge took over in 1959 and rose to international fame for pioneering unique blends in his limestone-rich but civil war-ravaged country. A charismatic philosopher and master of terroir, Serge died this past year. His influence carries on in the beguiling #complexity of his wines. This particular cuvée from the estate's younger vines elegantly balances #opulent dark fruit, exotic spice, refined tannins and the unmistakable Musar earthiness. — 5 years ago
