Dark red in color, this wine offers rich and fragrant aromas of mulberries, black cherries, plums and mocha. The palate is very intense and concentrated — full of volume and characterized by forest and black fruits with elegant spice. The tannins are soft and juicy and the wine has a lengthy finish.
A great match for red meats, especially game, seasonal casseroles and mature cheeses.
A challenging and unusual vintage in Lebanon has given this Musar additional Bordeaux style, with mulberries, cherry, spice and rounded tannins on the palate.
The 2011 Chateau Musar offers a slightly more balanced style as well as loads of sweet cherry and currant fruits, bouquet garni, saddle leather, and licorice. It’s incredibly complex, medium to full-bodied, has a great texture, and a charming, delicious, upfront style. It should keep for another decade.
