    Musar. A wine that has survived war, commercial wilderness and even comments that it has a ‘weird, briney note to some vintages’. Why? Because it is one of the most interesting, unique and complex wines in the world. Its grapes are grown in the Bekaa valley, the ‘bread basket’ of ancient Rome, and transported over the high coastal range to Serge Hochar, son of the founder Gaston.

    Unoaked and made according to Musar’s natural non-interventionist wine-making philosophy, Musar Jeune wines are vibrantly fruity, richly concentrated and the 2016 vintage is no exception.

    It is a blend of old vines Cinsault (45%), Syrah (45%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) from organically certified vineyards, harvested from late August onwards. The wines fermented in concrete vats between 27 and 29 ° C, they were not fined or filtered and the sedimentation occurred naturally. Blending of the 3 varieties took place in March 2017, it rested in concrete vats again until being bottled in the summer of 2017.

    The Syrah was particularly impressive this year – it was surprisingly big, powerful and masculine and for us, a new perspective on this grape which we planted in 2001. Cinsault was elegant and silky with an explosion of aromas reminding us that this grape is actually a Lebanese Pinot!

    The 2016 harvest showed without doubt that global warming is causing higher annual temperatures and at the same time, successive years of low rainfall have resulted in drier soils.
