Muse du Liban, a new wine from the heart of the cedars

Lebanon has a new wine, and it is - thankfully - not a chateau. Muse, "was conceived by none other than France’s Michel Rolland, one of the world’s most revered winemakers and award-winning consultants, with a palate renowned for its penchant for inimitable". The name and logo - much like Ixsir which broke the mould of "chateau" brings a refreshing change to the scenery. Apparently muse is available as "Rousing Red", "Rebellious Rose" and "Wanton White" (oddly they could have named the three varieties after women since they are going for the feminine concept). Still, Muse seems a much welcome novelty in the land of chateaux.
