Musar has assumed legendary status. Complex, long-lived and endlessly varied, in some vintages it seems more like a Burgundy, in others a Bordeaux, in still others a Hermitage. But it is always brilliantly, uniquely, Lebanese.
Enticingly aromatic; complex flavours of baked fruits and spices; full-bodied and distinctively tangy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault from Bekaa Valley vines with an average age of 40 years.
Seven years in the making, with a complex process of ageing and blending making each vintage unique. Ages magnificently but good vintages are usually best at 10-20 years old. Drink with well-hung game or, for something different, goats' cheese.
