#1 Post by Tom K. » March 15th, 2019, 8:29 am

The Chateau Musar rose is finally here, $44.99 from the 2016 vintage and it is pretty limited in stocks so let me know ASAP! These are from the national US importer, no grey market shwag!

Buyer pays for shipping.

Just as in Champagne, a small amount of red wine is blended with white to create this delicate, yet complex and age-worthy still rosé wine. The Chateau Musar Rosé was originally conceived in 1994 by the late Serge Hochar as a tribute to his love for the great rosés of Champagne.

Chateau Musar Rosé uses low yielding, ancient indigenous varietals Merwah (40%) and Obaideh (57%) as a base wine. These grapes are grown at 1200-1400 meters above sea level in the Mount Lebanon and Anti Lebanon ranges from old vines on their original rootstocks. The last of our grapes to be harvested in October, the Merwah and Obaideh are both barrel fermented and aged in French oak for 9 months, with a small proportion of red Cinsault wine (3%)
– the grapes are mixed in the press before fermentation.

The freshness and youth in this 2016 vintage lends a vibrant acidity to balance the unexpected richness and complexity of the wine, though both will develop with time and integrate seamlessly with the oak element and enhancing the experience. An ideal aperitif wine, though also suited to seafood, charcuterie, and washed-rind cheeses.

The 2016 has a very pale salmon color which belies the complex aromas and flavors within; hints of spice, rosewater, citrus, and a little red fruit lead to flavors of quince, and almond. The wine has a textural weight and body which finishes with a saline minerality. 12% Alc./Vol

Decanting and serving
Complex and concentrated, Chateau Musar Rosé shows at its best after several hours’ ‘breathing time’, and should be served ‘cellar cool’ at 15°C. The citrusy flavours excel with canapés, olives, nuts, seafood and Provençal dishes.
