The late, great Auberon Waugh writing in The Spectator, was one of the first prominent wine critics to champion Gaston Hochar's Chateau Musar as the equal of Frances greatest Bordeaux châteaux. His enthusiasm has been shared by his successors Simon Hoggart and Jonathan Ray. This extraordinary wine, made sometimes within the sound of gunfire at 3,000 feet in the Bekaa valley in that beautiful and tragic country, the Lebanon, is handpicked by local Bedouin and completely organic. Once tasted, it is never forgotten. Musar is only sold when ready for drinking, but will keep and improve for decades.

When I first tasted this new vintage I was overwhelmed by the rich, ripe sweet fruit - like really good wines, it is already delicious and will only get better.

"A balance of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan, fermented in concrete tanks and aged in oak for a year before blending, it's full of fresh and dried autumnal red/dark fruit, herbs, spice, coffee, leather and tobacco." Jonathan Ray, The Spectator

"...to the brand new 2017 Chateau Musar itself. As you know, Musar only ever releases its grand vin once it's deemed ready to drink and this is bang on song. A balance of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan, fermented in concrete tanks and aged in oak for a year before blending, it's full of fresh and dried autumnal red/dark fruit, herbs, spice, coffee, leather and tobacco. The tannins are silky soft and there's that typical touch of Musar sweetness before it finishes perfectly dry. I can't imagine anyone not begging for more."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
