1969 Chateau Musar Rouge, Bekaa Valley
"Mature medium colour with edges showing the age, distinctive nose, fruity and classy. Intense characters, drinking
beautifully combining elegance and power.
In the glass, it is a vintage where the Cinsault component tends to dominate; a paler and deceptively fragile colour, yet the
characteristic aroma and flavour is undeniably powerful and persistent. Initial fragrance of delicate fruit and tertiary
development evolves in the glass to a give a caramelised, almost roasted coffee note and dried fruit/spice finish."
Chateau Musar Tasting Note
"Pale rust red with a very pale rim. Much more obviously sweet and less ethereal than the 1961. This smells like delicious old-fashioned
red burgundy (possibly out of Algeria and the Rhône). Theres a bit of alcohol on the end. Thoroughly rumbustious. What an impact!
Sweet violet compote. Fine, long-polished tannins have almost completely receded. Lots of fun. Very slight powderiness on the finish."
