Full of red fruits yet meaty and rustic. Full body. Dense and powerful on the palate with vivid acidity. Rustic mild tannins.
Though labeled as Vin de France, the juicy is from 60-year old vine of the domaine in Corbières, Languedoc. Natural wine.
Terrific stuff. — 20 days ago
YES ! Finally after some time, a País that is not Brett drenched.
Chilled is best for this wine, cranberry, bacon fat, cherry, a touch of that skin contact tannin.
Smooth and right on time for a warm day working the garden.
This is delicious and worth seeking out. — 24 days ago
Château Musar Bekaa Valley Rouge 2000: Medium-bodied. Medium acidity. Elegant structure & balance with silky, integrated tannins. Bordeaux nose with evolving layers from dark to red fruits. Dried herbs. Spice. Tobacco. Earth. Long smooth finish. All in all, this wine was drinking perfectly. Hitting all the right notes even at the 22 year mark. It doesn’t get much better than this delicious, exotic beauty. What an amazing & memorable vintage & wine! Great day to all! Cheers🍷 — 14 days ago

Could smell this for days. Carignan predominant with cherries, but some blueberry jam, hint of pepper, hint of raw cocoa, some pine forest. Palate has a lot of tannin, more cherries, blueberry pie including crust, baking spice, hint of lime zest, and then a meaty game quality. Fascinating. Probably better in 5 years. — a month ago

Opened about an hour prior to service. The 2011 Chateau Simone pours a slightly turbid garnet color. Right off the first pour, this certainly isn’t faking the funk on a nasty dunk. Redolent of tart cherry, pomegranate, cranberry, cow pasture, red flowers, earth, mushrooms and grilled spiced meats. On the palate, the fruit and non-fruits are confirmed accompanied by stiff tannins and acid. The finish is long and satisfying. A wild yet charming wine. This was a fabulous pairing with grilled lamb chops. Drink now or over the next 5-10 years. — 8 days ago
