Chateau Musar Jeune Rouge 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 vintage has a bright violet colour with a nose of blueberries, violets, red cherries and red berry fruits. The palate is very fresh and fruity with blueberries, blackcurrants and red plums. This very balanced wine with its fruit concentration, soft tannins and long, warm finish, is best enjoyed in its youth" - winery

Created in 1930 in the cellar of an old 17th century castle, Château Musar is as much the work of a family as the living testimony of all the civilisations that have tread its soil. After a long stay in France, Gaston Hochar returned to Lebanon and created Château Musar in the cellars of the old 'Mzar' castle in Ghazir, overlooking the Mediterranean sea. What began as a hobby soon became a passion; a passion inspired by an initial encounter with renowned viticulturist Ronald Barton while he was stationed in Lebanon during the Second World War. The family's love for wine grew and in 1959, after completing his oenology diploma in Bordeaux, the eldest son, Serge, entered the business. Some call him the magician, the man behind this extraordinary wine. His response is that he only seeks is to translate what nature intended. Serge's younger brother Ronald, named after the late Barton, took over Château Musar's marketing and finance departments in 1962. Read less

A blend of Cabernet, Cinsault, and Syrah Very floral basenotes greet the nose which turns a bit funky before gaining black fruit aromas. On entry this is quite bright bringing lots of fresh if slightly inky black fruit to the palate and showing decent earth and herb driven complexity along with little stiff tannins on the moderastly long finish. 88pts
