Description

WINEMAKING IS NEVER easy, but in the case of Chateau Musar, the most famous wine to come out of Lebanon, there have been times when it has been almost impossibly difficult. Serge Hochar would say ‘in Lebanon, difficulties are our habit. We are addicted to difficulties!’ and he famously continued to make his wines regardless of the bombing and shelling attacks going on around him. This is his story, and the story of Gaston, Marc, Ralph and Tarek, the new generation that follows him, carrying on the tradition of making wines of charisma and character with minimal interference. It is a tale of our times; winemaking at its most instinctive and natural, inspired by Mother Nature, and resonating powerfully with the spirit of survival that has sustained the Hochars’ troubled homeland, Lebanon.

With contributions from Kevin Gould, Elizabeth Gilbert, Jancis Robinson MW, Steven Spurrier, Catherine Miles, Edward Ragg MW, Fongyee Walker MW, Michael Broadbent, Andrew Jefford, Bartholomew Broadbent and Susan Keevil, it is the perfect read for those who want to learn more about this incredible wine.

"Dynamic yet charming, always good company, plus a superb vigneron and winemaker, Serge Hochar put the wines of Lebanon on the map." - Michael Broadbent

Our aim at the Académie du Vin Library is to bring you the very best wine writing of the past, the present and the future. Some of our books are undisputed classics – refreshed for today’s reader but without losing any of the charm, or wisdom, of a more innocent time.
