Chateau Musar 1999
Serve at 18°C with roasts, grills (especially lamb), casseroles, game, and mature cheeses.
The color is a brilliant deep red color. The nose is full of red fruits, mostly cherries and cassis,
with flavors of vanilla, oakiness, and some hints of chocolate. This follows through in the taste
which is rich, well balanced, mellow with spices in the beginning, very smooth tanins surrounded
with mature red fruits, vanilla and chocolate, and a hint of orange in the end. Very long
and smooth after taste.
Ideally, bottles should be standing up the night before opening to allow the sediment to settle. After careful decanting (and discarding of sediment, usually in the last centimetre of the bottle) the wine should be allowed to breathe for several hours.
No additives, low sulphur, no fining
