    May 5, 2016 - Clear, greyish brown, very evolved in colour and on the nose - leather, earth, mushrooms, hints of Maggi spice. Soft and mellow on the palate, still very much alive and well balanced, good acidity. Nice bite towards the finish. Long, lingering. A wonderful bottle and a real privilege to taste! 93-95

    June 23, 2015 - Terroni with Marc Hochar: Serious gorgeous stuff; according to Marc, '66, '70, and '77 were bigger "Pomerol" years with heftier structure and longevity. "Only signs of age is in the appearance". Pale translucent ruby, slight rusty hues; fragrant floral and slight cherry pie nuances with slight reduction/fumey herbs, animale and duck sauce; smooth, silky, elegant, almost no perceptible tannins but not weak or lacking in depth; Amazing, but alas, $988/btl wholesale.

    November 14, 2014 - Fine old Musar on the nose, but the oxidation on the palate is too distracting.

    June 29, 2014 - Light brick red colour with orange meniscus. Mature, stylish and elegant nose of red currents, red cherries and cedar wood. On the palate the wine is lively, packed with red cherry, blackcurrent fruit, vibrant acidity and a freshness that belies the age. Perfectly balanced with great length - a truly super wine and still got years of life ahead of it.

    June 1, 2012 - Five Decades of Chateau Musar....with Serge Hochar (Shanghai Room, Langham Place Hotel, Mongkok, Kowloon, Hong Kong): Tasted blind as one of 12 vintages over 5 decades. Small serving. Very bright-jeweled, transparent ruby colour with no hint of amber......looks young compared to most of the wines. Nose is a drop dead gorgeous.... perfumed and with whisps of opium smoke....this has a resonance even on the nose, which is the mark of a very special wine. Palate is very light mouthfeel and a ferrous element up front but then it segues into liquorice pods and a dilute form of black Chinese medicine ....sweet fruit......a brilliantly dry brick dust powdery tannin finish. This stayed incredibly powerful with even a spoonful's-worth with extended time in the glass. My #5 as officially recorded but was really #3= with the 1978 and the 1995, group's #8 (but with three #1s).
