Anyone who thinks that the grapes in warm Lebanon are always in the scorching heat will be disappointed. The Bekaa Valley has an ideal climate for viticulture, partly due to its proximity to the sea. But for the white grapes, it has also been decided to plant at a great height, of no less than 1,200 meters. That is a guarantee for a special freshness of these grapes. The white grapes are therefore often harvested in the first half of October. This fruity and juicy Musar Jeune is made from the Mediterranean grapes viognier and vermentino, in combination with chardonnay. It is made like a fruity wine, through a fermentation in stainless steel, where the wine matures on the lees, the dead yeast cells. It is then bottled, after which the wine rests for another year in the bottle before being released on the market. It is a wine with its own character, smooth, fresh and uplifting.

In the glass, the Musar Jeune Blanc has a light straw yellow color. In the nose, the wine has floral notes, pineapple and pear, dried apricots, smoky, a touch of green herbs, basil. On the palate, the wine is medium to full bodied, powerful and flavoursome. Somewhat creamy with a hint of mint, ripe melon on the back of the palate, a hint of sweetness and a tasty bitter aftertaste.
