  1. Chateau Musar Hochar Père et Fils Red 2016, Bekaa Valley Lebanon

    Chateau Musar Hochar Père et Fils Red 2016, Bekaa Valley Lebanon

    £18.99

    Hochar Père et Fils Red has often been described as the ‘second’ wine of Chateau Musar, as it does bear some resemblance to the ‘Grand Vin’ but the comparison stops there.

    Rich, spicy and aromatic, this robust red hails from a single Bekaa Valley vineyard planted with Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Grenache over 40 years ago. Five years in the making, with 9 months in French oak barrels, it’s full of smooth bramble fruit flavours, with hints of figs, dates and cedary spice.

  2. Chateau Musar

    Chateau Musar Red 2011 Bekaa Valley Lebanon

    £31.99

    In their youth, Chateau Musar Reds are dense and richly-textured, with intense ‘baked fruit’ characters: plums, damsons, cranberries, cherries, figs and dates. Bordeaux grape Cabernet Sauvignon lends black fruit flavours; Rhône grapes Cinsault and Carignan contribute fragrance (violets; pepper) and supple spiciness. Either set of qualities might dominate a particular vintage, but the style is always emphatically Lebanese: enticingly aromatic, with persistent fruit flavours. Over decades the wines acquire tawny hues and mellow notes.
