    *5R* 2012 Chateau Musar Rouge (Bekaa Valley, Lebanon)

    5R

    Medium-bodied wines with more structure and a mouth-feel similar to whole milk

    *5R* 2012 Chateau Musar Rouge (Bekaa Valley, Lebanon)

    Hailing from Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, presents a deep garnet hue and an intricate bouquet of ripe red and black fruits, leather, tobacco, and cedarwood. The palate harmoniously combines dark berries, cherries, and subtle fig, enriched by integrated oak with vanilla and smoky nuances. Balanced acidity and fine tannins provide structure, while hints of Mediterranean spices emerge. A lasting finish echoes dark fruit and spice. This wine promises graceful aging and embodies Chateau Musar's timeless charm and the Bekaa Valley's character. A superb choice for wine enthusiasts, transcending borders and traditions.
