|JG 87-93 (3/2017): The 1991 vintage of Château Musar is a bit more volatile than many others, which may cause some tasters a bit of concern, but there is a lot of depth and complexity here underneath the veneer of volatile acidity. The bouquet is quite Châteauneuf du Pape-like at this stage of its evolution, offering up a fine blend of grilled meats, jammy raspberry fruit, pepper, garrigue, green olives and a fine base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and very nicely focused, with a good core, just a touch of remaining tannin and lovely length and grip on the vigorous finish. With this vintage of Musar, one’s tolerance to VA is really going to decide one’s impressions, as this is a very solid 92 to 93 point wine if the VA does not particularly bother you, but deduct six or seven points if volatile acidity is hard for you to tolerate. I am sure some folks would have difficulties with the volatile acidity here, but I absolutely loved it. 2015-2030.|
WS 84 (7/2000): Quite mature, with tea, earth, coffee and caramel notes that are clean and lively, if not dense. Flavors linger on the finish without drying out. Hanging in there. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignane. Drink now.
