2005 Château Musar Rouge, Serge Hochar, Bekaa Valley

Chateau Musar is fast becoming a household name, growing in reputation as the run of successive successful vintages continues. Serge Hochar, eldest son of founder Gaston Hochar, is a master of his craft and now something of a living legend. Having insistently taken over wine production from his father in 1959, Serge went on to be awarded the first 'Decanter Man of the Year' in 1984 for his reincarnation of what is rightly one of the world's most prized terroirs. Impressively, throughout the civil war in Lebanon the grape trucks never stopped in their tracks, in spite of bombs flying overhead. Only in 1984 and 1976 did the harvested grapes meet their demise. You'll have a job resisting the immediate charms, but these wines can age incredibly well, and we've fought hard to acquire a small parcel of the incredible 2005 vintage.
