Chateau Musar Jeune Red 2016 - Lebanon
Bottle size: 750ml
Available online only
Chateau Musar first started producing the Musar Jeune range of wines 10 years ago in 2006 from the fruit of low-yielding Bekaa Valley vines at around 1,000 metres above sea level. Altitude keeps the average temperature at 25 ° C with hot sunny days and cool nights and with 300 days of sunshine a year, grapes are ripened to perfection.
Unoaked and made according to Musar’s natural non-interventionist wine-making philosophy, Musar Jeune wines are vibrantly fruity, richly concentrated and the 2016 vintage is no exception. It is a blend of old vines Cinsault (45%), Syrah (45%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) from organically certified vineyards, harvested from late August onwards. The wines fermented in concrete vats between 27 and 29 ° C, they were not fined or filtered and the sedimentation occurred naturally.
The Syrah was particularly impressive this year – it was surprisingly big, powerful and masculine and for us, a new perspective on this grape which we planted in 2001. Cinsault was elegant and silky with an explosion of aromas reminding us that this grape is actually a Lebanese Pinot!
