    September 7, 2019 - This was one of the tightest old corks I’ve ever seen, and the wine reflects it. Clear, pure, and still showing ample sweet fruit. There was just a little bit of an off-aroma at first but it quickly blew off. This is remarkably clean for a Musar but has a great savory undertone. A beautiful wine from an exceptional man.

    November 19, 2017 - Delicate, developed aromas af barnyard, leather and some wood. Reminds of an old Rioja. Light and elegant.

    June 23, 2017 - Typical old Musar with oxidized fruit, prunes, dust, ample acidity and life to go. Certainly not a wine to drink on its own but if you have some dry-aged beef, wild mushrooms, or other funky and umami-rich food this will be a real treat to pair with it.

    (Chateau Musar) Light brownish red color; lovely mature raisin and earthy red fruit nose; mature, like an '82 2nd or 3rd growth Bordeaux, sweet tart cherry, red fruit and spice palate; long finish
