    October 17, 2019 - Deep ruby. The expected animal nose opening into sweet dark fruit. Smooth, approachable, good balance, still rather primary. 88-90.
    With more time to breathe - additional spice notes.

    October 6, 2019 - Right from the bottle: great. Unusual sweet and spicy. Typical Ch Musar.

    September 28, 2019 - Another fine example of Chateau Musar. Super silky smooth. Medium tannins; great balance of acidity. Plums, raisins and stewed fruit. Leather and subtle oak in the background. Beautifully long finish.

    September 17, 2019 - Ch. Musar Dinner with Marc Hochar (The Bunker, Crown Wine Cellars, Shouson Hill, Hong Kong): Pre-decanted for around 9 hours by Marc Hochar. Semi-translucent , deep black/red cherry colour. Nose is closed....black coal, but very clean, like a young Priorat. Palate is an orchestra still tuning up......elements of quite alcoholic heat, lots of jammy fruit, some spice but no integration even after such a long decant. A work in progress....too young to really enjoy.
