Chateau Musar first started producing the Musar Jeune range of wines 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 degrees Celsius 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 winemaking philosophy, Musar Jeune wines are vibrantly fruity, richly concentrated and this vintage is no exception.
The 2018 vintage is a blend of Cinsault, selected from vineyards with varying age of vines (50%), Syrah (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%). On the palate it is richly fruited with an enticing core of black cherry, plums, blackberries and black olives. Fresh acidity and soft integrated tannins. Is a big ripe wine soft, fresh and juicy designed to be enjoyed in its youth.
