A special Spectator price on a limited amount of 2014 Château Musar
Chateau Musar, the legendary Lebanese winery beloved of Spectator readers, only ever releases its grand vin when it’s deemed ready to drink, and so it is that the 2014 vintage has only just hit the shelves. It was a tricky year with unusually little rain and no snow to speak of on the mountains of Lebanon, despite which the Hochar family have conjured up yet another a glorious wine.
An equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan, it’s full of rich, ripe, dark damson/plum fruit and a hint of Morello cherry with swirls of spice and tobacco on the finish. With 12 months in oak and four years slumbering in bottle in the Musar cellars, it’s bang on ready to drink now but will give immense pleasure for at least the next decade or so. Grab it while you can!
