Chateau Musar Jeune White, 2019 - 750ml
Chateau Musar Jeune white is a lovely blend of Viognier, Vermentino and Chardonnay sourced from younger vines in Lebanon’s Bekka Valley. The wine is unoaked and fermented in cement lined vats. It is packed with crisp, fresh tropical fruit and subtle honeyed notes. Aromatic jasmine notes in the background add an exotic touch and freshness to the intense pallet of peach, pineapple and quince.
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.
