Food Pairings for Chateau Musar Red Blend
Enjoyed this old Musar from 1994 on 2 March, 2014. Has been in my cellar since Jan 2004, so 10 years. This is the last bottle of four. Medium dark, slightly brown/orange on the edges. Smokey, earthy warm and a spicy nose, some fruit and still powerful. The palate is spicy with fruit, plum, herbs and perhaps tea. Overall, very balanced with smooth tannins, but clear acidity. At the age of 20 year, it is still delicious, full-bodied and complex with great concentration and thus a very long after taste. Simply an excellent wine and a great experience.
Chateau Musar is one of my favorite wines in the world. I have had the opportunity to try many vintages, dating back more than 5 decades with Serge Hochar, the wine maker. This wine is a blend of three grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan. All grapes come from the Beekah Vally in Lebanon, not far from where the Romans built the Temple of Baachus. Every vintage of Musar is so similar to the next, but each has it's own individual personality. The 1994 is like a misunderstood guy. He comes off strong at first, but given time, continues to unfold infront of you to reveal a remarkable person. Aged in concrete for one year, oak the following and then back into concrete before it is bottled, the wine isn't even released until it has bottle aged for atleast 6-7 years. I love this wine with roasted game, turkey, lamb or grilled salmon. It has enough acid to stand up to most foods, so experiment a little... If you can't find this vintage, you can always request it as a special order from any wine shop. The current vintage of this wine is 1999, and it is easier to find.
