“First tasted with Serge Hochar in the Chateau Musar cellars, December 1999. The wine was still in individual vats: Cinsault from the garrigues of Kefraya in the Bekaa Valley: crisp, fragrant; attractive, some elegance. Carignan from Ana , a little further north: more flesh, nice fruit, very tannic. Cabernet Sauvignon was an incredibly deep colour: green, stalky nose; austere, astringent. It would be another year before blending. Most recently, seemed fully developed, good flavour, lovely aftertaste.” - Michael Broadbent 

Winemaker Notes: 

"A rich, warm deep cherry red with a smoky nose full of spice and fruits. On the palate there are mixed berry fruits – cherries, redcurrants, pomegranates and Christmas spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. Ripe sweet fruit with a smoky edge. Good acidity with good tannin levels results in a wine of classic structure with long ageing potential." 

Alcohol: 13.5%
