Ch Musar, Cuvée White 2007 Bekaa Valley
A blend of all white varieties (Chardonnay, Viognier, Vermentino, Obeideh) excluding Merwah. Full malolactic fermentation. Beautiful and pronounced aromatics of apricot, peach, apple and almond blossom. Dry and medium to full bodied accented with fresh acidity.  A very harmonious blend with no single variety standing out, round and curvy on palate with lemon drops, candied pineapple, apple and peach. Nearly seamless. (LG)
