Milton’s Pick for September: Chateau Musar and Moroder Dorico Conero Riserva

Musar Jeune

Great wines can be found in the most surprising places. Sometimes the hardest part of discovery is just being open minded. In the last couple of months I have tried great wines from Croatia, Greece, and Hungary. I have enjoyed these wines not just for their uniqueness but for their quality, aromas, and flavor. Continuing on this voyage I tried the Musar Blanc Jeune; a  blend of Chardonnay, Viognier, and Vermentino made in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon by the venerable Chateau Musar. The Hochar family has been making wines since the 1930’s. This unusual blend allows  each grape to shine. The Viognier brings the wine floral aromatics, while the Chardonnay gives it green apple and citrus notes, and the Vermentino lends a vibrancy that makes the it crisp and refreshing. I highly recommend this wine for the last precious days of Summer. Enjoy on a warm evening with seafood, maybe a grilled fish. A great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc. Be open minded, I promise it’s rewarding!!!

I love Moroder Dorico Rosso Conero! Plain and simple. I tried is bold full bodied Montepulciano in a tasting and was blown away by the intensity of fruit, hint of cinnamon and allspice,  sweet tannins and vibrancy. The wine is 7 years old and just beginning to open up, it could easily age for 10 plus years. The Rosso Conero DOC is in Le Marche which borders the Adriatic Sea in Central Italy. This little-known region, overshadowed by its neighbor to the south Abruzzo, is home to some of the most underappreciated and great values in all of Italy. Pair it with a hearty dish such as suckling pig or a New York strip.
