From the up-and-coming wine regions of Slovenia, Bagueri cabernet sauvignon is made hand-harvested grapes and fermented in 80% French and American barriques and 20% large oak barrels, followed by 24 months of sur-lie aging in the barrels. The resulting wine is full bodied and elegant, with aromas of blackcurrant, plum jam, cocoa, chocolate and mint. The texture is velvety and rich, with soft tannins and oak notes of vanilla.

Seven years in the making, Chateau Musar Red is a blend of cabernet sauvignon, carignan, and cinsault from vineyards near the Bekaa Valley villages of Aana and Kefraya on gravelly soils over limestone. Planted from the 1930s onwards, yields are low from these mature bushvines (average age: 40 years), giving between 15 to 35 hl per hectare.
The varietal components in Chateau Musar Red undergo lengthy fermentations in cement vats at temperatures below 30°C. Six months after the harvest they are transferred into French barrels (oak from the forest of Nevers) for one year. The varietal components are brought together two years after the harvest; the resulting blend is then placed back in cement tanks before being bottled twleve months later. Each wine is blended to reflect the character of the vintage. After four years’ bottle maturation in the deep stone cellars of Chateau Musar, the finished wines are released a full seven years after the harvest. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, Chateau Musar Reds are suitable for vegans.
