The Chateau Musar Rosé 2004 is a blend of barrel fermented white Obaideh and Merwah (indigenous white grapes of Lebanon dating back to 4,000 BC) with a small amount of red Cinsault. This technique is typical in ‘blended’ Rosé Champagnes that Serge Hochar enjoys, this is a softly oaked unsparkling tribute. Production of the Chateau Musar Rosé is very limited and not declared every vintage. The 2004 was the first vintage since 2001.
Released in April 2007, this has been sourced directly from the Chateau and is a perfect spot for drinking. The wine has a creamy aromatic nose of almonds, quince, apricots and wild flowers.The very supple palate of peaches, almonds, apricots and vanilla is well balanced with good acidity with a sweet apricot and spice finish. This elegant dry rose should ideally be served cellar cold and preferably decanted for several hours before drinking.
