Chateau Musar, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon 75cl

Product Code: WRTB0018


This well-balanced vintage is, perhaps, more ‘Bordeaux’ in style. July was very hot and dry; August was warmer than average and picking began early in the first week of September. The grapes were sweet and tannic, with good acidity: fermentation progressed slowly. A very approachable style for drinking now as well as having great cellaring potential. SILVER, International Wine Challenge 2008: “Sweet, gamey, cedary and fresh, with spice and dried fruit notes. A complex, warm nose with smooth tannins and peppery acidity.”
