Lets start at the beginning, Chateau Musar is different and so are their wines. Their backdrop, just 24km outside of Beirut, is rather unique, but their style and quality is undeniable.
Blending the majesty of the Bordeaux variety cabernet sauvignon with the warmth and spice of the top varieties of the Rhône - syrah, cinsault and grenache - would surely be considered almost heresy in France, however, you dont have to look too further afield to find this combination is already producing some incredibly popular and successful wines. Add in all the essence, character, and heritage of one of the oldest wine making regions in the world and you surely have the ingredients to stride confidently into the unknown with both anticipation and confidence that youre heading out on the right path.

The Musar Jeune Rouge 2020, is the baby of the group. An unoaked blend of cinsault, syrah and cabernet sauvignon with the same heart and soul as the Hochar while being a bit fresher, fruitier, and lighter. More similar to perhaps a Côtes-du-Rhône but still with Mediterranean warmth and spice. Bramble fruits are in abundance. This is a lovely wine for early drinking and could easily become the start of a fascinating journey into the wide world of wine.
"The 2020 Musar Jeune Red , with its oscillopsia-inducing, Timothy Leary-designed label (only joshing, dunno who came up with it but poor Mrs Ray said it made her eyes hurt), is Musar’s entry level red, designed to be knocked back with abandon. An unoaked blend of Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, it’s fresh, fruity and easy-going and full of juicy, spicy bramble fruit. It’s a sort of hybrid Côtes du Rhône Villages/Bordeaux Supérieur and really jolly good."
