2006 Château Musar Rouge Bekaa Valley

SKU #1448024 94 points Decanter

 This is from a cooler vintage, with the perfect growing season until July, when Lebanon came under siege without warning. They persevered despite the dangerous conditions, saving the vintage. For all the Chateau Musar wine, Carignan makes up the third grape in the blend. This is made in the same way as Hochar, but with an extra year in cement tank and four years in bottle before release. It is fragrant with delicate red fruit and floral notes. The palate is lifted and refreshing, with plenty of primary, delicate red fruit characters, and fine tannins on the finish. Just released and drinking beautifully now, be patient and it will reward you in the years to come. (CG)  (12/2017)

 Another new chapter in terms of density of colour. For the first time (tasting from old to young) this could be described as crimson. Seriously heady! Smells exotic and mature on the nose but not on the palate. But compared with the older vintages I have just tasted this of course is a baby… Masses of concentration and allure but, although it would give pleasure, it would clearly be sensible to keep it for quite a few more years. Lovely combination of fruit and freshness. Really vivacious. Sweet and rigorous. (JR) 18+/20 points  (2/2018)
