Chateau Musar first started producing the Musar Jeune range of wines 10 years ago in 2006 from the fruit of low-yielding Bekaa Valley vines at around 1,000 metres above sea level. Altitude keeps the average temperature at 25 ° C with hot sunny days and cool nights and with 300 days of sunshine a year, grapes are ripened to perfection.
Unoaked and made according to Musar’s natural non-interventionist wine-making philosophy, Musar Jeune wines are vibrantly fruity, richly concentrated and the 2016 vintage is no exception.
It is a blend of old vines Cinsault (45%), Syrah (45%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) from organically certified vineyards, harvested from late August onwards. The wines fermented in concrete vats they were not fined or filtered and the sedimentation occurs naturally.
Fresh, vibrant, fruity and soft with plenty of ripe red and dark fruit and a hint of sweet spice. The tannins are gentle and the finish smooth. It’s perfect for immediate drinking but also has years of ageing potential
