Chateau Musar, Musar Jeune Blanc
The wines of Chateau Musar are unique expressions from a country with an ancient wine-making culture, as vines have been cultivated from Lebanon’s high altitude Bekaa Valley for over 6,000 years. Chateau Musar’s red vineyards are situated towards the southern end of the Bekaa valley, north of Lake Qaroun and about 30 km south-east of Beirut. They lie near the villages Aana and Kefraya on a range of gravelly soils over limestone- ideally suited to viticulture. The wide range of soil types and aspects results in wines of distinctive character and blends of appealing complexity. Every wine of Chateau Musar is produced naturally with a ‘non-interventionist’ wine making philosophy and the winery was the first in Lebanon to implement organically certified viticulture in 2006 for its Chateau Musar Red and white grapes.
Musar Jeune Blanc 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. Made from the fruit of Viognier, Vermentino and Chardonnay vines planted since 2000 at around 1,000m above sea level in the Bekaa Valley.
