Founded by Gaston Hochar in 1930, Chateau Musar is Lebanon’s premier estate. This 371 acre property is located in the Bekaa Valley, 15 miles north of Beirut in Ghazir. The Houchars cultivate indigenous and international varietals Cinsault, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Grenache as well as Obaideh (a native of Chardonnay), Merwah (a native variant of Semillon), Chardonnay, Viognier and Vermentino. The vineyards are planted on a limestone bed with gravelly top soils and are certified organic by the Mediterranean Institute of Certification (IMC). The white vines are 100150 years old and planted at 4,000 feet, the reds at 3,280 feet. The altitude and the Mediterranean climate serve to lengthen the ripening process which help produce fruit of superior quality. Only hand-picked estate fruit is used and the wines are minimally handled natural fermentation very little sulphur and the wines aren’t fined or filtered. Chateau Musar is the family’s flagship and is thematically styled after the Grand Vins of Bordeaux. Each varietal is fermented and aged separately; the components are then blended and aged for a minimum of four years in bottle before release. The exception is Chateau Musar Rose, which matures for a year in bottle. The wines under the Hochar Pere et Fils label are often referred to as the family’s second wine, a more accurate description is a singlevineyard offering. The fruit for these wines is harvested from a 50+ year old parcel planted at 3,280 feet near the village of Aana. Musar Jeune wines are approachable, fruity and unoaked, in other words, wines meant for immediate enjoyment. In spite of the civil war that tore the country apart from 1975-1990, the Hochars have consistently produced exceptional wines, bar the 1976 and 1984 vintages when no wine was made. Serge, Gaston’s eldest son has been the winemaker at Musar since 1959 and was as “Man of the Year in 1984 by recognized by Decanter Magazine. Serge’s brother Ronald manages the business side of the winery along with Serge’s sons Gaston and Marc. Ronald’s son Ralph works with in Chateau Musar’s UK office. The Musar wines are unique, long-lived reflections of terroir that often reveal their best, 20-30 years after bottling.
Technical notes
Seven years in the making, Musar Red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault picked from vineyards near Aana and Kefraya. Each varietal was fermented and aged in cement vats for nine months and then for a year in French Nevers oak barrels. After the wines were blended, a third was portioned off to mature for another nine months in vats. The wine was blended back, bottled and cellared in the family’s cellars until Spring 2012.
