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 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 Jaune vines are vibrantly fruity and richly concentrated and this vintage is no exception.
Ageing Potential: 4 - 5 Years
This vintage has a deep crimson colour, a lovely black fruits nose with liquorice, mint and black olives. A good concentration of black cherry and blackberry fruit on the palate balanced with fresh acidity, soft tannins and a long after-taste of morello cherries and clove.
