Chateau Musar, Musar Jeune White, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon 2019
(at Brussels, 12 Jun 2020)
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2024
An outspoken wine with flavours of lychees and guava on a gentle but full body that is quite suave and silky, with a long, tense finish. It is at its best when just opened: it keeps well but does not improve over three days, and fades slowly over the course of a week. The blend of Vermentino and Viognier is a smart one: fruit is the most important quality of this wine, but its amazing texture is also impressive. This is definitely a wine to enjoy with food.
