An exceptional vintage, 1999 produced a wine with plenty of power, richness and concentration, due to a relatively mild growing season which ended with a increased temperatures closer to harvest time. The wine is deeply coloured, dense and fleshy, with good fruit sweetness and plenty of smoky, chocolaty, spicy notes.
The colour is a deep dark red, perhaps darker than usual at Chateau Musar. The nose is a complex, intriguing mixture of figs, prunes, leather, dark tea, tobacco, black olives with spices and a certain earthiness. On the palate, you will find ripe black cherries, figs, damsons - even chocolate and olives. There is good acidity with nice smooth tannins...
A deep burgundy colour with a nose of mature fruits, plums, cherries, figs, cinnamon and cloves. The aromas follow through to a palate full of rich black and red fruits – plums and damsons dominate with pomegranate, baked cherries and Christmas spices. An intensely concentrated powerful vintage with fine smooth tannins and a spicy, warming finish.
A beautiful deep, ruby hue with lots of almost confected cherry, blackcurrant and cranberries on the nose with a hint of liquorice. The palate has an explosion of brambly and hedgerow fruits with blueberries and cherries - this is a mid-weight vintage from Chateau Musar with excellent acidity and fine tannins.
