Château Musar Musar Jeune Rosé 2013

Château Musar Musar Jeune Rosé 2013

Perhaps little bit past its best as we would say in the WSET, I would have liked to have tried Château Musar's Jeune Rosé 2013 on release (which left me wondering why, exactly, I'd held on to the bottle for so long). Aromatics were very subdued on opening, but after some time pie cherry and, interestingly, an overarching not of kaolin clay. It's medium bodied, and rhubarb red in hue with moderate acidity. We drank this in honor of Serge Hochar. Château Musar 8.8 Points...

Musar Bekka Valley Red Blend 1999

Musar Bekka Valley Red Blend 1999

As the winemaker stated during in a recent #VivinoTasteParty, Musar is Musar. There is a compelling quality to these wines that make them special, Musar has a unique thumbprint. Incredible complexity on the nose, it unfurls slowly revealing layers of ripe plums, figs, cigar box, dried rose petal, spice and marvelous top notes of mint and dark chocolate powder. Medium-bodied, fine, velvety tannins lead into notes of red currant, leather, and rust. It crescendos with a finish of peppercorn, spice and tobacco. Chateau Musar 9.2 Points...
