Chateau Musar White Blend Blanc 2001
The Chateau Musar Blanc has a bright golden straw colour with a nose of almonds, cashew nuts, hot buttery toast, I brulee and honey. Rich warm toasty honey flavours on the palate together with fragrant herbs and spiced apples result in a very complex, rich and mellow wine. Grape varieties? Obaideh and Merwah, native to Lebanon.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
We drank this in 2011. The color of this wine is deep and a beautiful gold. The nose is crazy complex and a bit of a head scratcher. There's a bit of oxidation (but way less than I expected) and baked apples and a little nuttiness. What is puzzling is an almost menthol note on the nose that cuts right through the richness. Puzzling. On the palate it's wonderfully balanced with fruit notes, crisp acidity, and a rich mouthfeel. It's all very contradictory. You have the same baked apples and white nuttiness, rich body but with a crisp finish.
