Organic, Musar Jeune, Bekaa Valley 2018/19 75cl

Chateau Musar's youthful new red was made from the young fruit of Bekaa Valley vines at around 1,000m above sea level. Rich, soft and appealing, Musar Jeune is unoaked, intensely fruity and made as naturally as possible. It has rich plum and jammy fruit cake aromas with blackcurrants, redcurrants, cherries, raspberries and violets flavours followed by warm spicy and savoury notes on the finish.

Chateau Musar was the first producer in Lebanon to achieve organic certification for its vineyards. Most are located in the Bekaa Valley, cradled between two mountain ranges running parallel to Lebanon’s Mediterranean coastline. Vines have been cultivated here for at least 6,000 years: the Phoenicians (seafaring ancestors of the modern Lebanese) were instrumental in bringing vines and wines from Byblos across to all of the areas around the Mediterranean. Flanked by snow-covered mountains, and nestled at 1000m (3,000 feet) above sea level, the serenely beautiful Bekaa Valley is blessed with 300 days of sunshine a year, fresh mountain breezes and an average temperature of 25°C (encompassing snowy winters and hot summers). Remote and unspoilt, the Musar vineyards were ‘organic’ by default before the term was coined.
All the grapes are hand-harvested by local Bedouins between August and October. In the winery, ambient yeasts do the work of fermentation. The bare minimum of sulphur is used and the Chateau Musar wines are neither fined nor filtered. even years in the making, Chateau Musar Red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault from vineyards near the Bekaa Valley villages of Ammiq, Aana and Kefraya on gravelly soils over limestone, planted from the 1930s onwards. The finished wines are released a full seven years after the harvest.
