The red wines of Château Musar are known for their complexity and maturity. The wine is aged 12 to 15 months in Nevers oak, and blended in its third year, before being bottled and aged in the cellar for four years. Hochar's cult wine made from Cabernet and Cinsault needs little introduction.
Warning to novices: this wine carries considerable sediment and has a volatile nose. That is the nature of the beast. The nose is aromatic, fragrant, warm and mellow and it prepares the palate for fruits of cherries, strawberries and redcurrants.
The palate is indeed full of these softer summer red berry fruits and combined with soft tannins, the wine is very well balanced.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Cinsault
