    August 21, 2014 - Verticale Musar (Restaurant al Sad, Choueir): Robe jaune or, soutenue.
    Nez discret, notes de tilleul.
    Vif, harmonieux, belle amertume en bouche et une bonne droiture.

    December 19, 2009 - A gift that must not have been well stored. Removed the capsule and the cork almost fell in the bottle. Oxidized. Too bad as I was looking forward to this.

    December 10, 2005 - WLDG Cincinnati (Cumin): Gorgeous nose with smoke, flowers, myrrh. Very flush and giving on the palate with typical Musar Blanc dustiness and fine minerality, entered into salinity. Just goes and goes with more notes being revealed - silk, pollen, quince. Gorgeous wine with great depth and complexity. (This was double-decanted earlier in the day and really took flight from this.) Outstanding with lamb shanks and lamb chops.

    May 2, 2003 - Lovely colour, old-fashioned, fascinating and nuanced, a cross between Burgundy and Rioja Reserva but with less oak.

    (Chateau Musar Blanc) Fairly deep yellow colour. The nose is heavily oxidised, and I wonder if I'm drinking Madeira for a moment. Similar heavy oxidation on the woody palate, with a medium body, and some sweet fruit towards the finish. Would be interesting if it was fifteen years old, but this level of oxidation in a four year old wine simply makes it difficult to drink.
