Winemaker notes: "Hochar Père et Fils Red has been described as the 'second' wine of Château Musar, and it does bear some resemblance to the 'Grand Vin': rich, spicy and profoundly fruity, with a mellow quality derived from lengthy oak- and bottle ageing. Since its launch in the late 1980s, it has been sourced from a single Bekaa Valley vineyard planted in the 1940s. When young, the wines are robust and aromatic, with baked plum, warm earth, leather, thyme and dark chocolate characters. With age they become tawnier and spicier." The Hochar family settled...

Though Middle Eastern wine is something of a novelty in the U.S., wine is nothing new to this area; the cultivation of the vine goes back to the Phoenicians, who did a brisk business trading their wares along the Mediterranean Sea ports, introducing viniculture into many parts of southern Europe. Perhaps the oldest running wine concern in the region, Chateau Musar has been making fine wine 15 miles north of Beirut since 1930! These are reds of great character and subtlety, decidedly Old World in style. The grapes are hand-picked as the sun rises across t... Read More »
Eclectic blend of 35% Viognier, 35% Vermentino and 30% Chardonnay from Lebanon's venerable winery, Château Musar. Tasters typically note flavors of green apple, mango, and pineapple, while this vintage, according to the winery, turned out somewhat on the richer side, with mandarins, orange blossom and a full-bodied palate.
Chateau Musar first started producing the Musar Jeune range of wines 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 degrees Celsius and with 300 days of sunshine a year, the grapes are ripened to perfection. Unoaked and made according to Musar’s natural non-interventionist wine-making philosophy, Musar Jeune vines are vibrantly fruity and richly concentrated and this vintage is no exception. The Musar Jeune Red 2013 is a blend of old vines Cinsault (50%), Syra... Read More »
Château Musar is Lebanon's most famous producer. The winery does not make rosé every vintage, because the winemaker (the late Serge Hochar) sought very specific characteristics from the grapes he uses to create a fine, delicate and elegant rosé. Chateau Musar’s Jeune wines are made from low-yielding Bekaa Valley vines grown at around 1,000 metres above sea level. Producer's tasting note: "The Musar Jeune Rosé 2014 was produced exclusively from Cinsault and due to the climatic conditions of this year, it is a big, concentrated rosé with intense aromas of ...

This distinctive, full-bodied white is made from 100% Merwah, a Lebanese varietal, in an oxidative style with a very complex aroma and flavor profile. Think of a three-way cross between Sherry, aged Rioja, and the amphorae-aged wines of the Republic of Georgia. It is best enjoyed with a savory meal, especially if the flavors veer towards the umami side of the spectrum. For adventurous palates!
