“Following a very hot summer, they harvested earlier than usual in 2001. This is full of flavour, with black fruit notes coming through, and a hint of chocolate and cigar box. It has lifted acidity and silky tannins, with some dried floral notes on the finish. There's a touch of brett funk, but in a nice way, and it adds complexity to the wine. Drinking Window 2017 – 2022”

"As elegant as Serge Hochar himself, the man behind Château Musar, this blend of cabernet sauvignon, carignan and cinsault is lithe yet firm. The fruit feels autumnal, in shades of rust red and ocher spice, and is saturated with a spicy, foresty fragrance. It's delicious now, ready for game birds scented with juniper berries, and should live on for another decade"
