Details

The Chateau Musar Red 1999 is listed in ‘1001 WINES YOU MUST TASTE BEFORE YOU DIE’ by Neil Beckett and Hugh Johnson October 2009.

1999 – certainly an exceptional year, probably a reminder of the 1959


1999 was an exceptional year, starting with a dry winter, leading to a fresh spring and good flowering (although yields were reduced by lack of water). Summer was mild; July and August were cloudy; September was hot and sunny, enabling grapes to achieve high levels of alcohol, acidity and extract.


By The Spectator 

Fans will know what to expect – others will be delighted to discover a rich, dark, velvety wine with cedar,smoke, even chocolate and liquorice, topped off with a wonderfully fragrant perfume


By Decanter

Chateau Musar uses native grape varieties, each vinified separately, spending one year in tank, two in oak, the final blend made, like mixing paints on a palette, by Serge Hochar, a true artist of wine. At any rate, I admire the results, which are, for the foregoing reasons, noticeably different each year. I am currently enjoying the 1999. Not claret, nor Burgundy, not Rhône but Lebanon.

If the 1997 was Bordeaux-style, this gives more of a nod to the Rhône. An enticing, dangerous scent of violets, game and incense, with a concentrated, full-throttle flavour of dense, sweet fruits
