Description

The 2000 vintage of Chateau Musar is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan – approximately 1/3rd of each. It was fermented in cement vats and then aged for one year in French nevers oak barriques. The colour is a deep dark red, perhaps darker than usual at Chateau Musar. The nose is a complex intriguing mixture of figs, prunes, leather, dark tea, tobacco, black olives with spices and a certain earthiness. On the palate, you will find ripe black cherries, figs, damsons-even chocolate and olives. There is good acidity with nice smooth tannins resulting in a wine which full-bodied, rich and velvety with very long length. In summary we feel that the 2000 vintage is a serious wine with serious ageing potential but with a very approachable and open style which makes it perfect for drinking now as well as cellaring. Perhaps more Bordeaux like in character than in previous vintages.
