Grapes and vines
Seven years in the making, Chateau Musar White is a blend of ancient grape varieties Obaideh and Merwah, indigenous to the mountains of Lebanon and said to be related to Chasselas Chardonnay and Semillon. The Obaideh vineyards are in the foothills of the Anti-Lebanon mountains on stony, chalky soils, while the Merwah vines are on the seaward side of Mount Lebanon, on calcareous gravels. Yields are very low for these untrained bushvines: 10 – 20 hl per hectare. At high altitude (around 1400m) they are still on their own roots, among very few vineyards in the world of this calibre.

Tasting Notes from Musar
A deep yellow, golden colour – vibrant and clear. The nose is at first difficult to understand because it has so many
nuances: it is all at once, buttery, toasty, honey, of grilled and caramelised pineapple, lemons, mandarins, almonds,
vanilla and even minerally and salty– delicate and complex at the same time. The aromas follow through on to the
palate with a touch of butterscotch, figs and oranges. It reminds us of our White 1993 vintage but this year does have
its own very specific identity.
