1964 Chateau Musar Rouge, Bekaa Valley
"From an extraordinary vintage, this remarkable wine is still going as strong as ever. As deep, rich and concentrated today as it was
in its youth and still showing tantalising ripeness. Scarlet in colour with terracotta tones at the rim, it has a complex nose of cigar
box spice, warm leather, baked fruits, ripe morello cherries and blackcurrants. Medium to full-bodied, really silky with a great
mouth feel, lively and really rich on the palate, extremely drinkable with sweet, ripe tannins. The palate has intense flavours of dark
chocolate, red cherries, olives, figs, and velvet smooth tannins on the very long finish, lingering sweet red fruits and spices in the
"Mature rim but not for its age: still tons of vibrant life in the redness of the wine. Very little sign of ageing. Nose is very big, more like a mature Châteauneuf-du-Pape or other big, structured Rhône wine. Very concentrated and deep with autumnal bonfire ash. Spectacularly good, huge on the palate: damp decaying leaves; great acidity; volatility balanced by brown sugar flavours; delicious, sweet, long on the finish. Hardly any age. A great classic wine."
Bartholomew Broadbent, October 2019
