Wine Pick #2
Chateau Musar Jeune 2020
Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
Chateau Musar was established in 1930 by Gaston Hochar. The third generation of the family is now at the helm, running the business and making the wines with the same passion and dedication as when it first started.
The wines of Musar gained international acclaim in 1979 at the Bristol wine fair, where the eminent critic Michael Broadbent propelled the brand into the spotlight. In 1984, Decanter Magazine honored Serge Hochar with its first “Man of the Year” award. Since then, Chateau Musar has gone from strength to strength to become one of the most recognized Lebanese wineries outside Lebanon.
