Wine

Chateau Musar 2000, 75cl

£34.50

The 2000 vintage of Chateau Musar is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan – approximately 1/3rd of each. It was fermented in cement vats and then aged for one year in French nevers oak barriques. It was blended and bottled at the end of the third year following the harvest and aged for a further 3 to 4 years in the cellars of Chateau Musar at Ghazir before its release in May 2007.

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 resulting in a wine which full-bodied, rich and velvety with very long length.

Unless you are familiar with the Musar style of wine we recommend you do not purchase this wine.

Please ring for advice.

  Expert reviews

“Closer to a fine Bordeaux but it will age gratifyingly well for a very long time. And you can drink it with pleasure now: all that soft, velvety, peppery, spicy, earthy even chocolaty quality is already there in spades.” Simon Hoggart - The Spectator February 2007
