Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Musar Red 2015


Lobenberg: Der Mythos lebt, Musar ist der große Wein des Libanon. Als 2015er noch sehr jung, zu jung eigentlich, denn Musar ist ja ein Alterungswunder und dreht so richtig nach 10 und mehr Jahren auf. Wunderbar energetische rote Frucht, viel Kirsche und Cranberry, Johannisbeere, Hagebutte und Schwarztee, auch süße Gewürze Nelke, Zimt und Rosenblätter. Am Gaumen im jungen Stadium druckvoll aber recht schlank, die Fülle und der Schmelz kommen auch noch mehr mit der Altersreife bei Musar. Die typisch lebendige Säurefrische ist voll da, gibt ein elegantes Mundgefühl. Zwar schon trinkbar, aber doch auch mit großer Energie für noch viele Jahre versehen. Eindrucksvoll! Und für Musar noch blutjung. 95-96/100

Weingut über: Chateau Musar Red

-- Weingut: OverviewA year for the history books, where the mountains of Lebanon failed to turn white with snow. Very low rainfall during October and November 2013, where precipitation did not exceed 18mm. This trend continued into the New Year – no rain, snow or cold weather and only two stormy days affecting no more than 20% of the country! February and March were the driest and it seems as if this winter was an extension of summer 2013. April, May, June and July, where buds open and flowering occurs was perfect for the vines, but with one very important element missing for summer survival - water. By early August, the vines were starting to suffer badly. Sugar content in Cabernet Sauvignon rose drastically while acidity was stable. The varietal lost 40% of its weight due to lack of moisture and the hard work started on the first day of the red grape harvest - four teams harvesting simultaneously for the first time in Chateau Musar history. Carignan was also affected but not to the same degree, while the survivor of them all was, as usual, the Cinsault.Grape VarietalsAn equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan WinemakingEach varietal was fermented with natural yeasts in concrete vats. Due to the high sugar content, Cabernet Sauvignon was very slow to start, and fermentation was controlled at a lower temperature than usual to ensure its completion. Carignan was also very slow, however Cinsault survived the crisis and fermented normally with elegance and style. The wines were aged for 12 months in French oak barrels before blending in January 2017 and then bottled without fining or filtration in July & August 2017. The bottles are aged in the Chateau Musar cellars before their release in 2021.Tasting NotesA deep red colour, with aromas of sweet cherry, plum and dried fruit together with a subtle spice element and hint of tobacco. The wine has a soft, rounded mouthfeel with lots of flavour and fruit concentration – caramel, mocha, ripe red fruits which are supported with soft, velvety tannins and a spicy finish.
