Château Musar

Bekaa Valley Red Blend 2000

Château Musar Bekaa Valley Rouge 2000: Medium-bodied. Medium acidity. Elegant structure & balance with silky, integrated tannins. Bordeaux nose with evolving layers from dark to red fruits. Dried herbs. Spice. Tobacco. Earth. Long smooth finish. All in all, this wine was drinking perfectly. Hitting all the right notes even at the 22 year mark. It doesn’t get much better than this delicious, exotic beauty. What an amazing & memorable vintage & wine! Great day to all! Cheers🍷 — 24 days ago

Would liken to an entry level rioja. Dark red fruit, tobacco, astringent tannins. Mellowed out a little after opening but still a bit rough on the finish. — 2 months ago

My first experience with the 2013 Musar Blanc. I opened this bottle about an hour prior to service and enjoyed over the next three hours. Served at cellar temperature. The wine pours a bright golden color with medium, almost medium+ viscosity. The nose is…fascinating. Notes of lemon, herbs, marigolds, honey, marmalade, cloves, bandaid, and something that reminded me of an old rail yard. No cap. On the palate, lemon curd, slightly underripe star fruit, green herbs, a bitterness that reminds of walnut skin…the wine is really wooly, with a long smokey and rather saline finish. Medium+ acid that builds with air. This is about as Musar as it gets. Rustic, wild and irresistible all the same. I’m sure this bottle isn’t without flaw but that’s sort of what you get with Musar. Anyway, we had no trouble finishing off the bottle. It should be noted that the wine improved with air. I’ll hold my remaining bottle until at least 2028. — 18 days ago

Wet fresh cut cedar, sawdust, cigar box. Simply delicious. Went for an afternoon run while on holiday and saw my second snake in 3 days. They are everywhere. This guy jumped over a small curb. I don’t know who was more scared. Me of the snake🥺 — 2 months ago
