    (Chateau Musar (Bekaa Valley)) A fading red-brick hue, typical for Musar, this being the case on the nose as well as on its appearance. Sweet, gamey, leathery, spicy, smoky, full of cloves and roast meats, with a background vein that is slightly lifted and volatile, this will please fans of Musar everywhere. Quite light now on the palate, with the volatility suggested by the nose, here the aromas matched by evolved and gamey flavours set against a fading and increasingly lean palate. This should keep going for some time yet, although I suspect it is on a slow downwards slope from now on. Very fine though. Drink up - or at least start doing so!

    (Chateau Musar) A mature hue, showing the pallor of age, but still with decent density at the core. A lovely nose, full of meat and leather character, with macerated fruits, prunes, dates and a hint of cloves. The palate is impressive. It has a rich, supple, velvety texture, with plenty of sweetly mature fruit. A touch creamy, it still has some peppery tannins showing through the midpalate and finish. What a presence - delicious - and yet will still improve with another three to five years in the cellar.
