Chateau Musar first started producing the Musar Jeune range of wines in 2006 from the fruit of low-yielding Bekaa Valley vines at around 1,000 metres above sea level.  Altitude keeps the average temperature at 25 degrees Celsius and with 300 days of sunshine a year, grapes are ripened to perfection. Unoaked and made according to Musar’s natural non-interventionist winemaking philosophy, Musar Jeune vines are vibrantly fruity and richly concentrated and this vintage is no exception.
The Musar Jeune Red 2013 is a blend of old vines Cinsault (50%), Syrah (35%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) from our organically certified vineyards, all harvested in September 2013. The wines fermented in concrete vats at a temperature between 27 and 29 degrees Celsius, they were not filtered or fined and the sedimentation occurred naturally. Blending of the 3 varieties took place in March 2014, it rested in concrete vats again until being bottled in the summer of 2014.
This vintage has a deep crimson colour, a lovely black fruits nose with liquorice, mint and black olives.  A good concentration of black cherry and blackberry fruit on the palate balanced with fresh acidity, soft tannins and a long after-taste of morello cherries and clove. It is best enjoyed in its youth, served with grilled lamb, chorizo and southern French dishes, particularly meat dishes of the Languedoc.

Chateau Grand Village Rouge, Bordeaux Superieur

The red is usually a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. There is only a very small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon planted here as the soil, as in Pomerol, is rich in clay. The blend is usually 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot and aged in barriques for 12 to 1 months, with only a small proportion of new wood, never more than 20%. The result is a supple and harmonious claret with deceptive levels of concentration and definition and it generally drinks well from three to ten years after harvest. Colour: Red
