Château Musar 2000

£34.97

The colour is a deep dark red, perhaps darker than usual at Chateau Musar.
The nose is a complex, intriguing mixture of figs, prunes, leather, dark tea, tobacco, black olives with spices and a certain earthiness. On the palate, you will find ripe black cherries, figs, damsons – even chocolate and olives. There is good acidity with nice smooth tannins resulting in a wine which is full-bodied, rich and velvety, with very long length.

Description

Chateau Musar has been making fine wine 15 miles north of Beirut since 1930! These are reds of great character and subtlety, decidedly Old World in style. The grapes are handpicked in the Bekaa valley and are then swiftly transferred to the cellar in Ghazir where fermentation takes place followed by maceration lasting 2 to 4 weeks. During the first year the wine is racked into Bordeaux type barrels made from Nevers (from Burgundy) oak and where it matures from 12 to 15 months.
