The Legend Lives On
Jancis Robinson MW recently conduted a vertical tasting of Red and White Ch. Musar, encompassing vintages from 1961 to 2011. Subscribers can read the article and notes here.
The charismatic Serge Hochar may no longer be with us but his life's work lives on in the extraordinary library of back vintages still available from the Chateau's cellars. The reds are immensely age-worthy but it was always the whites which Serge was proudest of:
“My whites are my first reds, they are to be served at room temperature, they will go with more foods than any of my reds, they are more serious than my reds and their dimensions are way bigger than any of my reds”.
-Serge Hochar 1939-2014.
