Chateau Musar
'The Legends of Lebanon' Six-Bottle Discovery Case

Sorry, this item is no longer available

This is a special offer six-bottle mixed case containing 3x each of the following wines:

2016 Chateau Musar Red

Seven years in the making, this illustrious cuvée is a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault made from 40-year-old low yielding bush vines. The separate grapes undergo lengthy fermentations for 6 months in cement vats, and then age individually in French oak barrels for 12 months. After this the blend is made and the juice is transferred back to cement tanks for 12 months before undergoing a further 4 years of bottle aging in Musar cellars, prior to release. An incredible deep ruby in the glass with an almost mahogany tint, this wine is already showing excellent maturity and approachability for its size. Red cherries, plums, vanilla, carob, figs and exotic eastern spices dominate the rich and fragrant nose. The dense, smooth and refined palate then sings with notes of kirsch, sweet and ripe plums, blackcurrant and distinctive notes of dark chocolate and cocoa beans. The tannins are fine, soft and velvety, perfectly rounding out the picture. This wine has incredible depth and concentration of fruit and a long lingering finish.

This is a serious wine that will continue to age and evolve for decades to come but that is drinking delightfully now. Neither fined or filtered, sediment is to be expected, so allowing the bottle time upright to allow the sediment to settle and decanting before drinking is recommended.

2016 Chateau Musar White

One of the most unique and extraordinary white wines you are ever likely to come across, the Chateau Musar White is a blend of ancient grape varieties Obaideh and Merwah, indigenous to the mountains of Lebanon, grown on slopes of over 1400m in altitude. Just like the red, this wine has spent almost 7 years aging before it has been released onto the market. This is a fragrant and highly distinctive dry white, with a dazzling nose of quince, lemon-zest, baked apple, vanilla, honey and nutty sherry-like notes from the oxidative ageing. The palate is rich and intense yet retains great freshness with citrussy notes, grapefruit, honeyed nuances, subtle spicey notes and a creamy, almost buttery finish. Many have tried to liken this wine and its profile to other things. Some say it resembles a ‘dry Sauternes’, others ‘old white Rioja’ and others compare it to Manzanilla. However, honestly this wine is wholly unique, an unapologetically individual wine that we find to be utterly intoxicating and entrancing. Quite the experience!

Cellared well, this wine will keep for decades, however is drinking very well at this moment. Not to be over chilled, this wine sings best around 14-15°, ‘cellar cool’.
