2006 Château Musar Blanc Bekaa Valley Lebanon

SKU #1179290

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!

Let me start by saying this is not your everyday white wine. It is very much a connoisseur kind of wine. It resembles sherry and I treated it as such. So I served it to accompany a platter of Manchego cheese, olives, chorizo, pita etc... It was perfect.

Sometimes you just have to break out of your comfort zone and try something completely new and different to your palate. I had no clue what I was in for when I opened this bottle but my expectations were exceeded after the first few sips of this unique wine made from grapes indigenous to Lebanon. Texture, complexity , a slight salty almost nutty quality, a mélange of flavors I can’t quite describe except to say that this was delicious with a slice of foie gras torchon. Not an obvious pairing choice at first glance but it turned out to be quite delightful.

FREAKING LOVE THIS STUFF. Who can argue with native Lebanese varietals? Besides of course stodgy wine critics! Ok I'll admit this isn't for everyone, but if it doesn't fit your palate you might want to consider changing your tastes ; ) Clearly I'm smitten and you will be too if you like any of the Lopez de Heredia white. A triumph in my opinion!

Drinking this wine over the course of a day would be ideal so you can experience the constant change that occurs with air. Although a 2006, the wine is still quite young and could sit happily in a loving cellar for years to come. Certainly one of the most interesting wines I’ve ever had, in true Musar fashion. Hints of beeswax, lanolin, and fresh mussels on the nose while the palate includes apple skins, salinity, oysters, almonds and white flowers. Plus, the grapes used in this wine come from a vineyard that was never hit with phylloxera, thus have their original rootstocks, such a rarity.

If you're going to splurge on a white wine, you want one with complexity and stunning nuance. This is that wine. Slightly oxidative on the nose, the aromas are nutty and slightly earthy. The palate has a bit of subtle oak flavor before moving into a saline note and a bit more mineral of a direction. Fascinating and delicious.
