Pleasant but unbalanced. Big, ripe red and black fruit, supple, just a bit low on acid — 20 hours ago
Excellent white wine blend - the classic Sauvignon blanc/Sémillon blend but made more full bodied with vanilla due to aging in oak barrels. Paired wonderfully with salmon. — 2 months ago
4+ hrs of decanting certainly helped potential 100 pts in a couple of years. — a month ago
Good value. Green melon and minerals. Bright and fresh. — 10 days ago
Rich, mature, nutty, floral and citrusy. Mandarin, mango, lemon oil, lots of peppery spice, resin, wet rocks, pine kernels and cheese.
True, it’s a peculiar mixture, but it works!
This is great to drink now, the sooner the better, in your garden, some roasted almonds and some old goatcheese within reach.

Odd wine of the night. Cab Franc to top it off. Fresh ripe tomato and tomato leaves, dried herbs (oregano) on the nose. Tastes much better than it smells. Light bodied, with medium plus acidity, slight red fruit feel and herbaceous finish. Again odd wine, not surprising for a Cab Franc, but good tasting experience. — 2 months ago

Je suis un fan de muscadet. Pas de ces versions acides et étriquées à vous détartrer ce qu’il vous reste d’émail aux dents, non. Plutôt de ces envolées fluides, légères, agiles et admirablement tracées livrées par un melon de bourgogne traité aux petits oignons. À celui-ci s’ajoutent texture saline et densité qui allonge la finale. Top ! — 19 days ago
Decanted for around an hour, the recently released 2013 Grand Vin from Chateau Musar is an enormous wine at present in its youth. Gradually, it opened into a gorgeous, exotic and utterly unique product of this unlikely corner of the wine world. There’s plenty of Bordeaux-like character in the form of dark fruit and cigar box, but there are notes too of cranberry, liquorice, clove, mandarin and five spice. The mouthfeel, as a whole, has a quasi Brunello quality to it, with its bright cherry fruit and mouthwatering acidity. But woe is anyone to compare this wine to any other, for it is incomparable. One of Serge Hochar’s last vintages before his passing in 2014, and one that will doubtless have a long life. — 2 months ago
