Come try our newest wine, from Lebanon. The Jeune Rouge is a “second” label from Bekaa Valley stalwart, Chateau Musar. The Hochnar family behind Musar make”(u)nique wines from an ancient tradition”. The Bekaa Valley has seen grape cultivation for ages, and its wines were commercially imported to Damascus and Baghdad already in the 18th century B.C.
The Jeune Rouge (2009) is a ruby-red blend of 60% Cinsault, 20% Cabernet Sauvignan, and 20% Syrah that is made for drinking now. It has flavors of fresh cherries, strawberries, and raspberries that are fresh and flavorful. The wine is silky and elegant in the mouth.
