2007 Chateau Musar Blanc Bekaa Valley, Lebanon

$45

“This Chardonnay, Viognier and Vermentino blend from Lebanon starts with aromas of candied allspice, flowers and toast. On the palate, the wine offers soft, subtle flavors of spice, flowers and vanilla. Unusual but approachable—pair with poultry, cheeses.” – Susan Kostrzewa, Wine Mag

In 1930, at just 20 years old, Gaston Hochar founded Chateau 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 French 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 Chateau Musar and Bordeaux that remain to this day.

The wines of Chateau Musar are unique expressions from a country with an ancient wine-making culture as vines have been cultivates from Lebanon’s high altitude Bekaa Valley for over 6,000 years. Every wine of Chateau Musar is produced naturally with a non-interventionist winemaking philosophy and the winery was the first in Lebanon to implement organically certified viticulture in 2006 for its Chateau Musar Red and white grapes.

At 34 degrees North of the equator, the centre of the Bekaa Valley is further south than part of Spain or Italy and as such gets its fair share of sunshine during the summer months. The Musar vineyards are blessed in two ways: they are situated at the relatively high altitudes and have just the kind of calcareous, gravel and stone soils the encourage the production of high quality grapes.
