Tasting Note :
The 1999 Château Musar is another excellent wine that is showing more of its cabernet side of its personality on the nose as it closes in on its twentieth birthday. The bouquet is complex, pure and nicely tertiary in its blend of cassis, dark berries, Cuban cigar, lovely dried spice tones, an excellent base of soil, sandalwood and a touch of bonfire in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, plush on the attack and rock solid at the core, with a nice touch of pepperiness on the backend, ripe tannins and lovely focus and grip on the complex, resolving and still gently chewy finish. Whereas the bouquet is rather cabernet-oriented right now, the palate is classic Musar, with the spicy, peppery and gently autumnal elements quite prevalent that one finds often in wines that include Carignan and Cinsault in the blend. A lovely and very classic Musar in the making!
