Chateau Musar 2014 Red Half BottleRegular price £19.95
A deep red colour, with aromas of sweet cherry, plum and dried fruit together with a subtle spice element and hint of tobacco. The wine has a soft, rounded mouthfeel with lots of flavour and fruit concentration – caramel, mocha, ripe red fruits which are supported with soft, velvety tannins and a spicy finish.
One of the best younger vintages of Musar we tried - with wonderful rich, sweet fruit character. Don't underestimate this wine's longevity tough - this wine will still be drinking beautifully in 20-30 years time, guaranteed.
Lebanese, unique. From the historical wine producing Bekaa Valley and produced by master winemaker Serge Hochar. Concentrated plum and blackberry fruit, hints of fig, prune, distinct liquorice and spice. Fine, supple tannins, with hints of cedar and cinnamon. Long finish. Château Musar wines last for decades and can be enjoyed with just about everything!
