    March 31, 2019 - Exotic, as ever, perhaps a bit sweeter, smoother and hotter than it has shown in the past.

    March 15, 2019 - Brick stone coloured when opened, the taste a bit laidback. Two hours later the colour is more red, and the wine is much more lively. Great with summer lamb, potatoes and mushroom stew. Saved half of the bottle for tomorrow.
    Day two: Even better today. What a youthful and fruity 28 year old.

    February 8, 2019 - VA for sure but delicious all the same.

    September 8, 2017 - Two bottles, archetypal variation. One had a crumbly cork. First: darker, plenty of VA, oxo cube & marmite. It deteriorated. The 2nd: elegant, genteel, graceful, fragrant; lovely balance, with a kick-ass finish. At best, will continue to age well.

    (Chateau Musar) The once dense colour is continuing to fade here. The core still shows an oxblood hue, but the rim fades to a pink-orange reflecting fourteen years of ageing. A lovely nose, with dried meats - perhaps goat, Moroccan leather, a little rubber and some slightly volatile, macerated red fruit. Beautiful texture on the palate, which is full, mouthfilling and creamy. There is a slight acid sharpness lifting the palate, and a wealth of macerated fruits, leather and spice. A touch of tannin, and plenty of tingling spice, with a lemony edge, on the finish. This is absolutely splendid - one of the best Musars, along with the 1994 (when it's not corked), that I have tasted.

    (Chateau Musar) A pale mahogany colour, with a classically unusual nose, with leather, macerated berry fruit and a good lick of volatile acidity. This is classic Musar, easily identifiable on the nose. The palate has sweet, leathery fruit, with animal and farmyard nuances, and that VA is still quite evident. Tannins are nicely integrated. There's a fantastic sweet and spicy intensity of smooth fruit on the finish. Drinking beautifully.
