Château Musar Jeune Blanc


Château Musar is located in the Bekaa Valley, in Lebanon. It was created by Gaston Hochar in 1930 when he was only 20 years-old and inspired by Lebanon’s 6,000-year winemaking tradition and his travels in Bordeaux. Serge Hochar, his son, started producing wines at the end of 1950. His brother, Ronald, joined at the beginning of 1960. In 1975, 97% of the production was sold locally. It picked up after the Bristol Wine Fair of 1979 and, in 1990, at the end of the civil war, the export accounted for 97% of the production. The 3rd generation of the Hochar family started joining in 1994 and is still a family-run-business. Musar Jeune White is an unoaked blend of Viognier, Vermentino, Chardonnay from youthful Bekaa Valley vines. Crisp and aromatic, this eclectic blend of French and Italian varieties has its own distinct personality – passionfruit, apples, elderflowers – and a dry, refreshing finish. No need to decant; enjoy chilled (10-12°C) with grilled fish, herb-scented roast chicken, seafood salads and spicy oriental dishes. All their wines are Organic.


Tasting Notes from Pinto Wines

Colour Pale gold
Nose Honeydew melon and exotic fruits with an underlying mineral note
Palate Ripe peach, melon; almost a tropical fruit cocktail. A subtle spice note on the finish. Vibrantly fresh and deliciously drinkable within two to three years from harvest
