Please Note: In Bond price for info only. Musar is only available to purchase duty paid.
One third each of Cabernet, Cinsault and Grenache, aged for a year in French Nevers oak barrels. Released in spring 2016.
Mid crimson. Light, sweet start. For the moment it’s a little simple. Bright, ripe red fruit. Slightly burnt edge. Lots of tannins. Quite dry and youthful on the finish. Much longer bottle age needed. By far the most youthful wine in this vertical. 2028-2050. 17+++ points Jancis Robinson MW
“Musar only releases its grand vin when it’s ready to drink – there are violets and ripe red berry fruit from Cinsault; spice, liquorice and burly backbone from Carignan, blackcurrant, blackberry and silky elegance from Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s ready to drink, yes but there’s no rush” Jonathan Ray – The Spectator Magazine April 2016
