Described by the Chateau as its second wine, the back label says that Cuvée Rouge is “made according to the philosophy of Chateau Musar,” an intriguing directive. It’s extremely rare in the UK. Again, it’s not on the Musar website (although there is a wine called Cuvée Musar). And despite its age, this “entry level” Musar experience (as Stuart described it) is only £7.95, just the thing for the Sediment blog. Sediment likes the idea of “entry level”. It suggests you’re at the same concert, just with a restricted view. But sadly here, it’s not so much a restricted view as a restricted orchestra. With a paler colour, and no legs to speak of, Cuvée Rouge is a pallid version of Musar; yes, it has that burnt, almost medicinal nose, but it’s low on fruit and doesn’t have a lasting finish. Tolerable with food, it is disappointing on its own. Read our full article on Musar and all its offspring at http://sedimentblog.blogspot.com/2011/01/offspring-of-chateau-musar.html

Light ruby clear, the nose reveals underwood hints, the texture is light with fruitiness, the tannins are nicely integrated, nice, smooth with no edge.

the color of the wine is transparent and shinny, the nose lacks personality and is very different from the typical complex Musar nose. the pallet is thin revealing a majority of immature cinsault partially extracted. the syrah and cabernet appear on the back label but are very shy in the glass. all in all disapointing no real kick beside the acidity away from Musar personality.
