Bit leesy. Evolves in the glass with orange blossoms and hints of mint.

As expressive as Rosé gets. Unmistakable Musar terroir comes through like a laser beam. Orange peel, baking spice, herbal tea, persimmon bread. Unabashedly exotic and aromatic with a sensational attack of acidity and spice and the oxidative notes and candied fruit aromas that are the Musar signature. I tried not to let my Musar bias influence my experience but this is simply bonkers. Unique, quirky and thrilling with food.

Vintage 1994 - made of the 3 c's: #cabernetsaugvinon, #cinsault and #carignan. I have a weak spot for Musar. Its colour is lightish brown, tuilé. Easy to be mistaken for old nebbiolo. It's nowadays quite unique to see such colour. The wine smells warm and inviting, and yes, complex. I smell pipetobacco, the sweet, vannila, leather and a forrest with wild mushrooms. A spices warehouse. Rich! On the tongue a attack of satin, só smooth, nice sweetness and compelling attractive bitters at the end. A marvelous wine, now 23 years old. Elegance ánd finesse. #musar #lebanon #happiness

I have never had such a striking rosé. Fantastic doesn't cut it. A nuanced wine, but very filigreed with a lovely, haunting finish.

Rose wine from the Chateau, not to confuse it with Jeune Rose. Orange rind, rose petals, persimmons, cardamom, sumac and wild strawberries.

Game and iron, some florals and scorched earth? Not every day you find something like this. #chicago #bucktown #tabledonkeystick #chateaumusar
