Lot 185

Chateau Musar
Lebanon Red, 1959
1 (1 x 1) 750ml
The 1959 Chateau musar was first vintage of the late Serge Hochar and is often said to have been his favourite. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan from high up in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon, this eccentric but legendary wine seems to have many parallels with Chateau Libertas in its styling and aging. The region is however unique, flanked by snow-covered mountains at 1000m above sea level. The estate also managed to escape many wars.

Musar is renowned its honest styling and longevity. The 1959 initially showed some earthy and musty notes, blowing off to reveal wonderful sweet fruit and exotic spice. There is generous sweetness on the palate, perhaps even residual sugar, rounding off the wine but also giving it life and enjoyment. The palate is composed, long and comforting with generosity and enjoyment. This bottle was recorked and relabelled at the property in 2012 and will keep for another few decades. - Roland Peens 94/100 (2015)
