Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau Musar Blanc 2001

Rated 89 by Wine Spectator
A rich, mature style, with plenty of smoky notes to the ripe pear, apple and butter flavors. Clove and anise fill the rich finish. Distinctive. Obaideh and Merwah. Drink now.
Rated 85 by Wine Advocate
The 2001 WHITE is a blend of Obaideh and Merwah, fermented in French oak, aged for 9 months and late released in 2008. This is a lot cleaner and more alive than the 2000 reviewed this issue. It is a wine that has some body, good acidity and appealing texture, hints of caramel and dates, even if underneath it promises to oxidize soon. It is stern and a little brooding. It should last a good while, but if you want to drink it before it oxidizes, drink it in the immediate future. Drink now-2015.

Additional Information on Chateau Musar Blanc 2001

Winery Chateau Musar

Country: Lebanon

There are few countries in the world which have a more fascinating or ancient viticultural history than that of Lebanon, which archaeologists believe has been producing wines for over five thousand years. Indeed, the Phoenicians who once lived on the Lebanese coast were responsible for spreading viticulture around Europe several millennia ago, long before the Romans or Greeks. Today, Lebanese wines are receiving more and more global interest, and wineries are opening every year to meet the growing demand. Most of the grapes which are grown in the fertile and beautiful eastern part of the country are of French origin, although there are still plenty of indigenous grape varietals which are also becoming more popular as wine drinkers worldwide seek out new flavors and styles.
