Chateau Musar, 1998

The Hochar family’s philosophy of respect for the environment means that the 180 hectares of Musar vineyards are managed with minimal human interference and all the wines are made naturally. Chateau Musar was the first producer in Lebanon to achieve organic certification for its vineyards in 2006.

The winter preceding the 1998 harvest was anormal lebanese winter - a mixture of cold, rainy and snowy weather with several weeks of sunshine. This was followed by a cold wet spring which lasted until June. Summer followed its normal pattern, although from June until October there was no rain at all. The crop was good in terms of both quality and quantity - the grapes were healthy and very good to eat. Fermentation progressed smoothly, although slightly more quickly than usual, maceration was up to four weeks and the wines spent one year in French Nevers oak casks. It was blended in September 200 and bottled in August 2001. 

The 1998 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan, which come from vineyards with an average age of 40 years. This vintage has more Cinsault, making it very fragrant and aromatic. The wine is smooth and balanced with soft harmony - seductive and immensely appealing.
