Château Musar 2009 Bekaa Valley 75cl

Chateau Musar 2009 Bekaa Valley Lebanon Red Wine 75cl is the traditional blend of approximately one third each of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan. The blending took place 3 years later in 2012 and the wines spent a year in French Nevers oak barrels. The Cabernet Sauvignon in particular flourished this year, from flowering to dominating the final structure and taste of the wine. 2009 was a truly memorable year in the Bekaa Valley and a vintage of two halves – before and after the rain! This vintage will go down in history as the year of the two day September deluge – unprecedented since records began in 1870. After the September rain fall, the remaining red grapes were harvested and were juicier than usual, showing a full bodied structure and a very fragrant nose.


Pairs well with…

  • Brie
  • Duck
  • Fungi
  • Lamb
  • Red Meat
  • Venison
"Mid-crimson. Light, sweet start. For the moment it’s a little simple. Bright, ripe red fruit. Slightly burnt edge. Lots of tannins. Quite dry
and youthful on the finish. Much longer bottle age needed. By far the most youthful wine in this vertical tasting" - Jancis Robinson
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, Cinsault
Rich red and black fruits on the nose with hints of Assam team and dark chocolate. The palate has well-integrated tannins, cinnamon spice and a long, dry finish.
Excellent with venison as well as strong, mature cheeses.
