|Grapes||A blend of ancient grape varieties Obaideh and Merwah|
|Volume||75cl (Full Bottle)|
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.
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 hl/ha.
A deep golden colour with a very distinctive nose of honey, nuts and caramelised orange. Rich and full-bodied with a good balance of acidity and alcohol with a wonderful and long after-taste.
