Château Musar Blanc 1966

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Intensely aromatic this is all smoky herbs and soil notes with a remarkable freshness and subtle dried citrus fruit character. Unique, complex and captivating in the mouth. This retains a bright nature to it with rapier acids supportingly gorgeously fresh honeycomb, mineral, and dried citrus pith flavors. Really so elegant and fine. Each sip reveals a bit more detail. Fabulous wine and a real treat. 94pts

The family's love for wine grew and in 1959, after completing his oenology diploma in Bordeaux, the eldest son, Serge, entered the business. Some call him the magician, the man behind this extraordinary wine. His response is that he only seeks is to translate what nature intended. Serge's younger brother Ronald, named after the late Barton, took over Château Musar's marketing and finance departments in 1962. Read less
