Cinsault originates from southern France, and is one of the parents of Pinotage (the other being Pinot Noir). It is the most widely planted grape in Morocco and can also be found in Italy, South Africa, California and the Lebanon. Cinsault needs a warm climate to ripen and if grown sensitively can produce soft, flavoursome wines with great potential for ageing. It is also used to make fresh and fruity rosés. Cinsault is often blended with Carignan to soften out its harshness, and the two together can make wonderfully balanced wines with great structure.
M de Minuty Rosé by Château Minuty is our bestselling wine for a reason: it's the archetype of Provence rosé. Instantly recognisable in its famous fluted bottle, it is delicious, elegant and refreshing, and it still offers better value than any other rosé wine.
Jeune Rosé is an intriguing, complex rosé made with Musar's customary panache. Ready to drink on release and perfect with Lebanese food, the Jeune range is perfect to enjoy while you wait for their other wines to mature.
Musar has assumed legendary status. Complex, long-lived and endlessly varied, in some vintages it seems more like a Burgundy, in others a Bordeaux, in still others a Hermitage. But it is always brilliantly, uniquely, Lebanese.
Jeune Red is an approachable, early-drinking wine from Chateau Musar. Delicious, and inimitably Lebanese in style, it is one to enjoy while you're waiting for Musar's other, famously long-lived, reds to mature.
