Chateau Musar Gaston Hochar Rouge 2001

Chateau Musar Gaston Hochar Rouge 2001

In youth, Chateau Musar reds are dense and richly-textured, with intense baked fruit characters: plums, cranberries, cherries, figs and dates. Cabernet Sauvignon lends black fruit flavours; Rhone 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.
