Unoaked and intended for earlier consumption, the Musar Cuvée Blanc is the uncomplicated, easy-to-drink younger sibling of the idiosynractic Lebanese winery's more austere Château line. A blend of Chardonnay, Viognier and Vermentino, the wine has aromas of bruised apples on the nose, but plenty of fresh apple and pear on the palate with bright acidity and a stony, mineral profile. It's a balanced wine with pleasant astringency on the palate and an herbaceous character throughout.
