Chateau Musar (1998)

New

One of the great attributes of Chateau Musar is the availability of old vintages which have been stored at the winery with perfect provenance. Admittedly, 1998 is not a particularly old vintage for Musar, but it has just started to develop those secondary notes of undergrowth, tar, cedar, wood polish and tobacco. This gives the impression of being a mature wine, but never under estimate Musar, its wines seem to live forever.

    Musar. A wine that has survived war, commercial wilderness and even comments that it has a ‘weird, briney note to some vintages’. Why? Because it is one of the most interesting, unique and complex wines in the world. Its grapes are grown in the Bekaa valley, the ‘bread basket’ of ancient Rome, and transported over the high coastal range to Serge Hochar, son of the founder Gaston.
