Musar- Jeune Rouge 2016
Musar Jeune: a range of youthful, unoaked wines from the Bekaa Valley vineyards of Lebanon’s iconic Château Musar. Made according to the Hochar family’s philosophy of “natural” winemaking, this deep-colored red, blend of Cinsault, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, soft, and appealing. Intense flavors of cherries, blackcurrants, blueberries, and violets finish on warm spicy, savoury notes. Delicious with grills, roasts, and casseroles. Serve at cellar temperature.
Made from the fruit of Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah, vines planted since 2000 at around 1,000m above sea level in the Bekaa Valley.
Musar Jeune Red is fermented in cement-lined vats and bottled a year after harvest and released a year later.
