Try with grills, roasts, casseroles, delicatessen meats and mature cheeses.

Producer/Region:

Musar Jeune Red is an unoaked blend of Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon from youthful Bekaa Valley vines. Meant for current consumption – within a few years of the harvest. This deeply-coloured, vividly fruity style, first produced in 2007, may yet prove to be a ‘keeper’.

Made from the fruit of Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, vines planted since 2000 at around 1,000m above sea level in the Bekaa Valley. Musar Jeune Red is fermented in cement-lined vats and bottled a year after harvest and released a year later. No need to decant; enjoy straight from the bottle at between 16-18°C.

The grapes were fermented in concrete vats with temperatures between 27 and 29 degrees Celsius. It was a race against the clock to have the wine fermented and racked, and to release fermentation vats for the grapes that needed saving from the heatwave but they managed. The Musar Jeune Red was blended in March 2021. And then rested in the vats until being bottled during the summer of 2021 and released in the spring of 2022. Musar Jeune Red is unfiltered and made according to our non interventionist wine-making philosophy.
