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 Musar Jeune Red is a blend of old vines Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon from organically certified vineyards.
The wines were fermented in concrete vats between 27 and 29 ºC, they were not fined or filtered and sedimentation occurred naturally. After the varieties were blended it rested in concrete vats again until being bottled in the summer.
This wine is a deep burgundy red with an attractive red cherry and violet aroma. The flavours are of juicy, sweet summer fruits; raspberries, black cherries with hints of elderberry and hibiscus. The flavours are beautifully balanced with soft tannins and fresh underlying acidity and incense-like spice.
