2011 Château Musar Rouge Bekaa Valley Lebanon

SKU #1413446 93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A very wet spring in 2011 in the Bekaa Valley led to a delayed season and their second latest harvest on record. This has aromas of plum sauce and damson, varnished woods and noticeable volatile acidity – part of the style. The palate is medium- to full-bodied, with tangy balsamic acidity and a savoury, leathery finish. It's just starting to drink now but will last well thanks to its dense lattice of ripe tannins. (MW) Inner quote mark (5/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Fairly deep ruby. A denser, more concentrated, linear nose than the 2010 served alongside. A certain dustiness of aroma. This seems more obviously Cabernet than most Musar reds. Still quite youthful. Falls away a little on the end. Well judged but less distinctive and less obviously Lebanese than some vintages. Decent balance. Certainly not over the top. 17/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A minerally red, with dried Asian spice notes to the raspberry and red currant flavors. Raspberry jam and curry accents show on the finish. Drink now. (KM) Inner quote mark (7/2016)
