Chateau Musar 1989
|Label||Slightly Bin stained|
Jancis Robertson 16.5 -
Blend of two local varieties, Merwah and Obeideh. Both varieties are partly fermented in oak barriques where they mature for a further nine months. They are then blended, bottled and aged for a further four years before release. 25% new barriques each year.
Loads of baked apple - reminiscent of vintage champagne with an old-Chardonnay-like character, along with coconut and brazil nut. Dry and full-bodied still showcasing crisp acidity. A very complex wine.
