Château Musar 2000 Gaston Hochar



This, I think, will be the most divisive of the Musar reds reviewed this issue… The crisp character makes it refreshing and delivers lingering flavors to the palate on the finish, but it also means there is not a lot of fleshiness here, the texture is not particularly caressing and it has a certain austerity that some will appreciate — and many won’t. Yet, it evolved beautifully in the glass and I greatly admired its structure, which should guarantee its ability to age gracefully for a long while in the cellar. Drink 2010-25. 89+ points.
