|JG 88 (3/2017): The 1983 Château Musar has a touch of volatile acidity, which is not surprising or particularly alarming to my palate (low levels of VA generally do not bother me all that much), and this dissipates a bit with time in the decanter, allowing most of it to blow off. Once blossomed, the wine is quite pretty and fully mature, offering up scents of fruit cake, coffee, hung game, Christmas Tree spice, leafy autumnal notes, a good base of soil and a gently balsamic topnote. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and complex, with still a bit of backend volatility in evidence, melted tannins and lovely length and grip on the focused and complex finish. This too seems to be inching towards the far side of its plateau of peak maturity and is probably going to slide into gentle decline in the not too distant future, so I might be inclined to drink up this vintage of Musar over the near-term. 2015-2025?|
MB **** (12/1999): Good colour; warm, harmonious nose and palate. Very sweet, very agreeable.
