Where the younger et Fils range is bright and alive with ripened fruits, this is certainly more wise and gentle. Dried plums, plenty of spice, still in its prime almost two generations later. Phenomenal juice.

Vintage 1999 / every day I have the opportunity to taste #Musar feels like a day with a silver edge 😉 this year gives a lot of joy and still has live ahead. Flint in the smell ( a burning touch too) elegance and finesse

A touch herbal, with menthol, blackcurrant. Good grip. Always interesting.

First Musar experience and most engaging wine I’ve had in a long while. High toned and delicate but still distinctly powerful in grace. Clean orchestration. Reminds me of great Burgundy and Bordeaux smashed, or rather softly molded, together. Absolutely killer with strip steak and sautéed rainbow chard.

One of the better bottles of 99 I’ve had. Gorgeous sweet cherry, leather, earth, and herbs. Fabulous finish.

Decanted for 4.5 hours; consumed over 2 hours. So very young but already an extraordinary showing. This is a positively sublime expression of Musar: tart cherries, wild game, dates, Fig Newtons, tobacco, Herbes de Provence, alfalfa...simply delight to behold. Monumental structure with ample tannin an acid to balance the avalanche of fruit. Makes me wonder how long these could go. Easily one of the top 5 wines I’ve had this year. Oh baby...this is good.
