In 1930, at just 20 years old, Gaston Hochar founded Château Musar, inspired by Lebanon's 6,000 year winemaking tradition and his travels in Bordeaux. His 'wines with noblesse' greatly impressed senior officers in the army following on from the Franch mandate of the 1920s. Major Ronald Barton, of Château Langoa-Barton, stationed in Lebanon during World War II became a great friend, strengthening the links between Château Musar and Bordeaux that remain to this day.
Very nice cherry colour. Smoky smell turning to hot chocolate and ripe fruits. Velvety in the mouth, round, full-bodied, spicy fruit with a lengthy finish.
Enjoy with a roasted topside of beef.
