We are big fans of Musar and this bottle almost pre-dates our marriage, quietly waiting in our cellar for the right moment. What a complex and delicious beauty, with a masterful weaving of brett and remarkably bright fruit.

Musar never disappoints. 00 and 03 were in almost perfect condition!

The 2000 vintage may be just about perfect right now. Thrilling interplay between the yin and yang of feminine and masculine charm. Lovely silky tannins, still retaining mouth-watering acidity. Red fruit nuances are revealed in many layers- delicate sweet cherries, red apple skin, pomegranate. The typical brett character is very much present, but rides beneath the surface and blends rather harmoniously with dried herb and mushroom flavors. I love and admire the deft touch and consistent quality displayed in Hochar's wines. Texture, weight, impact and mouthfeel are all so precise and seamlessly whole. An ethereal kind of wine with dusty, funky Old World charm and a sense of delicacy that makes it impossible to resist. This vintage for me truly affirmed why this producer has such a singular reputation and terroir.

Refined, plenty of earth, red roses, raspberry, hints of tobacco and leather, firm tannins

So funky and alive. A glass of stewed red fruit, mushrooms and red earth.
