Château Musar Bekaa Valley Red Blend 2001 (375ml)

$31.95

As elegant as Serge Hochar himself, the man behind Chateau Musar, this blend of cabernet sauvignon, carignan and cinsault is lithe yet firm. The fruit feels autumnal, in shades of rust red and ocher spice, and is saturated with a spicy, foresty fragrance. It's delicious now, ready for game birds scented with juniper berries, and should live on for another decade. Wine & Spirits Magazine

Vintage 1999 | wow! A Burgundian smell with rosehip and barnyard, very impressive. Awesome balance and very long aftertaste. A treat!

Vintage 2001 | a matured Lady, classic, tertiaire tones, a bit drying aftertaste

Very secondary but still retaining loads of sweet fruit. Plums, figs, chocolate, coffee, cherry compote and leather are bursting forth right now. Double-decanted and tasted with Marc Hochar in Napa.

Very interesting wine. Colour - ruby. Aroma - oaky. Tastes like a Spanish Ribera. Rich wine, yet retaining a certain level of finesse. Would buy again.

Aromas of dark berries and cherry, a plummy musk, and wafts of kretek ~ pronounced pastilles on the palate meld into the herbs de Provence coated lamb shanks infused with lavender, honey, thyme, basil and Dijon mustard ~ killer pairing!

Loving these slightly developed Musar, for their price they are equal to some of the best wines from Bordeaux/Rhône, depending on the vintage.

Now is the time! Decanted 2 hrs, cloudy thinning hue, funky nose of vegetation, moss & wet stone. Still delivered rich fruit & poise.
