Chateau Musar 2015 75cl 14.5% ABV
Chateau Musar 2015, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
2015 was one of the most challenging vintages in a generation for Chateau Musar with a frost in April and a heat wave in September, stressing the Cabernet Sauvignon and resulting in a 65% loss of the crop. The quality, however, is remarkable, and despite being released earlier than the usual seven years from vintage, the Chateau Musar 2015 is an absolute belter of a wine.
Chateau Musar 2015 is an equal blend of one third each of Cabernet, Cinsault and Carignan, but this year the Cabernet takes a back seat (aromatically speaking). Deep ruby in colour, with aromas of bramble, blackcurrant and cherry, together with leather and delicate, peppery-spice notes. The flavours are similar, with vanilla, warming spice, and cocoa. A powerful finish lingers with the hallmarks of this fine wine, leather, incense, balsam, and cedar.
Perfect paired with roast lamb, game, casseroles, ribeye steak, and mature cheese. After careful decanting the wine should be allowed to breathe for an hour. Drink now to 2035.
