Chateau Musar Red 1969
Mature medium colour with edges showing the age, distinctive nose, fruity and classy. Intense characters, drinking beautifully combining elegance and power, fruit and flesh age with youth. A wine at its peak.
The 1975, 1969 and 1967 styles are similar and appear to be more Cinsault dominated. They are more orangey brown in colour than the 1977, 1970 and 1966 vintages - more forward with an extraordinary bouquet and taste which is something on its own.
