1997 vintage. I love Musar reds, and this 1997 is no exception. Like a hypothetical blend of great Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Barolo, traditional Rioja and left bank Bordeaux. Amazing complexity and a truly unique style. And it remains one of the greatest values in the world of wine, less than 50 euros in 2019!

The 1997 is incredibly elegant and confident. Graceful impact and gentle attack. The most Burgundy-like of the Musars I’ve tasted. Still has a ton of youthful vigor, focus and energy. Zero palate weight. Elevated VA is allowing the aromatics to really take off. The most refined and beautiful Musar I’ve had yet, covering the broad spectrum of red berries, herbs, leather, spices and minerals. Funky yet refined.

Desert island wine. Bacon, butterscotch and caramel. Such an unexpected find.

An honor to have this wine in Serge's remembrance #RIP Cherry, earth, sweet tobacco, plum, with cedar and forest floor. Pure, fresh and excellent balance.
