Since its establishment in 1930, Château Musar has been recognised globally as Lebanon's foremost producer. Here in the fertile Bekaa Valley, just 30km northwest of Beirut, the Hochar family have been producing their world-class, flagship blend of cabernet sauvignon, carignan and cinsault for over ninety years. It is also where the family's full dedication has enabled them to produce a vintage every year but one (1976), is spite of the country's tumultuous history.
Musar's vineyards enjoy the ideal combination of dry summers and cool nights for yielding fruit with the level of flavour intensity and structure that makes for sumptuous reds which are as readily drinkable as they area age worthy. Vintages are only released when the château feels them ready; typically, between five and six years after bottling.
As a dedicated distributor, Johnny Wheeler has enjoyed a close partnership with Musar for over twenty-five years and remains proud to offer the Jeune, Hochar and Château vintages that have become such enduring favourites among customers.
