Chateau Musar is Lebanon’s reference-point producer. Their vineyards and winery are located in the Bekaa Valley, near the border with Syria and halfway between Beirut and Damascus. In this troubled corner of the world, Musar has patiently been growing and making beautiful, aged and age-worthy wines since the 1930s. The wines nod stylistically towards both Bordeaux and the Rhône Valley. Farming is certified organic farming and fermentations are indigenous, with no fining or filtration. The Jeune (young) White is 40% Viognier, 30% Vermentino, and 30% Chardonnay. This is a white with Bordeaux-like texture and body and more Rhône like flavors.
