Château MusarRegular price €40.00
The wines of Château Musar in Lebanon—in particular this wine, the estate red—enjoy international recognition.
The balance of power and refinement and the rich, spicy character of each successive vintage mean that this bottle is more sought after than many more familiar and more expensive European reds.
The 2014 vintage came after a season of unusually dry weather in the Bekaa Valley, but careful management in the vines and in the cellar overcame the resulting challenges.
This is a full-bodied, smooth and rounded red that will keep for decades. If you are lucky enough to secure a bottle or two, though, it can equally be served 'young'. Either way, its concentrated, herb-accented plum and cherry flavours and soft tannins make it a magnificent accompaniment to festive dinners or any special savoury meal.
