The aroma is yellow and orange citrus fruit, pineapple, with an underlying mineral note. The palate has flavours of lemon and tangerine dominate with a delicate stone fruit and honey character, supported by the weighty mouthfeel. Vibrantly fresh and deliciously drinkable within two to three years from harvest. To be enjoyed with simply prepared Mediterranean cuisine, or as an aperitif.

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.
