Château Musar is a wine that has enthralled generations. Once you taste it, you’ll understand why he says his white is his biggest red. At room temperature, the texture and opaque complexity reminds of aged white Rioja. The wine has a honeyed quality yet it’s stone dry. It has notes of orange blossom, honeysuckle & yellow flowers. It is full bodied and concentrated with mandarins, lemon & lime. It is profoundly individual, partly, no doubt, because wine from Lebanon, one of the oldest wine regions in the world, is so unusual, and partly because Mr. Hochar makes so little use of modern winemaking techniques, which might just file away Musar’s distinctive edges.
