    December 14, 2019 - No formal notes. Deep colour. Quite aromatic, moderately oxidative. Baked apples, orange rind, notes of nuts and honey, lanolin. More interesting nose than palate, lacking acidity a bit.

    July 6, 2019 - from Coravin, glass pour.

    Darker golden color. Nose reduced, some lemon oil. Palate citrus pith, good richness balanced by a bright acidity and a very strong minerality. Still vibrant, complex and interesting. 91 pts

    May 17, 2019 - Das ist anders! Schon die Farbe kurz vor orange. Braucht Luft! Kaum Säure, aber nicht strukturlos. Wachsig, würzig, trocken. Schwer zu beschreiben. Kein Easydrinking!! Bestimmt toll zum passenden Essen! Die Erfahrung sollte jeder Weintrinker mal gemacht haben! Macht locker noch 10 oder mehr Jahre. Crazy!!

    May 16, 2019 - This is different ! Very Special ! Thought of dry White port and dry pineau de charente. No acid. Slightly freshness. Lot of spice. i really enjoyed the first glass. But the second glass was too much ! Not my wine !

    (Chateau Musar Blanc) The usual blend of Merwah and Obaideh. Deep golden colour; not necessarily a good sign. Meaty, oxidised style. Better structure than the previous two wines. Good grip. Apparent oxidation. It has some merit, but I find it not to my palate.
