The aroma is soft red fruit, peach and quince notes with an underlying subtle spice note in the background. The palate has aromas with further soft red fruit flavour, as well as stone fruits which compliments the wine’s refreshing and youthful acidity. Ideal as an aperitif or with Mediterranean salads, fish and charcuterie.

It was established in 1930 by Gaston Hochar, who was inspired by Lebanon’s 6,000-year history of winemaking and his own travels to Bordeaux. The Hochar family, who are of French descent, arrived in Lebanon during the 12thCentury as knights of the crusades and have remained there ever since. Their association with wine began in the 1920’s when France was assigned the League of Nations mandate for Syria, which at the time included Lebanon. During this time Gaston Hochar started producing his ‘wines with noblesse’ which were so good that they greatly impressed senior officers in the French army. Later, Major Ronald Barton, of Château Langoa-Barton, who was stationed in Lebanon during World War II, became a great friend of Gaston Hochar, cementing the links between Chateau Musar and Bordeaux that remain to this day.
