Chateau Musar 2003 - 750ml
Chateau Musar 2003 is showing some subline developed characteristics behind its rich, sweet fruit aromas. It is full bodied by Musar’s standards and extremely intense with plum and dark cherry fruit, Asian spice, figs, fruitcake, mature fruit and a luscious finish. It is a delicious bottle of Musar which is in a really nice place just now. It could age for decades more but is irresistible right now.
Chateau Musar is more than a wine. It is the story of one man’s vision and struggle to succeed through the unlikeliest of odds. The wines are now iconic, enjoy cult status and are as unique as they are brilliant. Serge Hochar famously produced his wines through the civil war (1975-1990) and was perhaps one of the Godfathers of ‘Natural Wine’. Heavily influenced by Bordeaux the wines come from calcareous, gravel and stone soils in Lebanon’s Bekka Valley. The vineyards benefit from cool nights and seasonal temperatures which result in long growing seasons. It is a unique terroir that producers a unique range of wines.
