Chateau Musar Rouge, Bekaa Valley 2000
The late and great Serge Hochar was a remarkable pioneer planting the first vineyards in the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. I once asked him how good the previous vintage was. His reply "everything was perfect – no missiles or bombs". Chateau Musar 2000 must have been one of those years!
A 20 year old wonderfully complex mature red wine of tremendous character, the Chateau have just released new stock of this vintage to us. It is an extraordinary blend of Bordeaux and Rhône grape varieties combined with native Lebanese grapes.
Very special and a rare treat for all of us, we don't often get this chance.
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
"We've offered the 2000 Chateau Musar before and Monsieur Hoggart lapped it up, praising its 'soft, velvety, peppery, spicy, earthy even chocolaty quality' on its release in 2007. The years have been kind and there is even more sweet fruit to the fore and succulence on the finish."
“This extraordinary Lebanese winery is the epitome of triumph over adversity.”
