  • A typical old Musar: fragrant as Zanzibar, soft as feathers, succulent and melting as caramel. The fragrance (bolstered by record levels of VA, just like Cheval Blanc `47) suggests, after 30 years in bottle, wild mushrooms and the forest floor; the flavour is sweet, spreading and singing, the red fruits of the first sip metamorphosing towards date and...

  • Established by Gaston Hochar in 1930. Chateau Musar is without doubt Lebanon`s top wine estate and their flagship red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault from vineyards in the Bekaa Valley. The 1970 is full-bodied, fragrant, rich and supple, tasting like a slightly more exotic version of great Pomerol. Level - Into Neck

Chateau Musar is without doubt Lebanon`s top wine estate and their flagship red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault from vineyards in the Bekaa Valley. Serge Hochar said - One of the greatest years. I don’t recall why, exactly...I discovered the future of Chateau Musar...

  • The year will be remembered as the start of the Lebanese Civil War which would last fifteen years. During this time, the domestic market naturally contracted – the Paris of the Middle East to where film stars vacated would become a thing of the past; tourism ceased so export markets in Europe became the new focus. Level - Into Neck

  • The 1977 is a wine for Musar purists. With such extensive bottle age, the colour of this Lebanese legend has softened to light mahogany and the flavours are almost indescribable; leather, savoury and earthy. The texture is fine, silky and delicate. This is extraordinary – (The Wine Society, December 2019) Level - Mid Shoulder

  • One of the great attributes of Chateau Musar is the availability of old vintages which have been stored at the winery with perfect provenance. Admittedly, 1998 is not a particularly old vintage for Musar, but it has just started to develop those secondary notes of undergrowth, tar, cedar, wood polish and tobacco. This gives the impression of being a...

  • The colour is a deep dark red, perhaps darker than usual at Chateau Musar. The nose is a complex, intriguing mixture of figs, prunes, leather, dark tea, tobacco, black olives with spices and a certain earthiness. On the palate, you will find ripe black cherries, figs, damsons - even chocolate and olives. There is good acidity with nice smooth tannins...

  • Thought of as the second wine of the famed Musar estate, Hochar comes from a separate vineyard site & is a lighter, more easy-going style. Partially aged in oak vats for 6-9 months, the wine undergoes a further 2 years' cellaring prior to bottling. An intense burgundy colour with a complex nose of black fruits backed up by figs, dates and spices. The...

  • From vineyards at a cool elevation at the slopes of Mount Lebanon, Chateau Musar whites are a blend of the indigenous Obaideh and Merwah. The soil is gravelly over a limestone base. The 1969 white is predominantly Merwah from vines which were on average 50 years old and trained on the Gobelet method. Yields are smaller than the reds, at less than 20...
