Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau Musar Rouge 1967

Rated 89 by Wine Advocate
The 1967 Chateau Musar is a wine that Serge Hochar really likes, I think. I wanted to really love it. I really, really did. I loved its ageworthiness. I (sometimes) liked its fresh, crisp finish. I appreciated the real backbone. I liked many of its sensibilities – in theory. In the long run, though, there are lines to be drawn and this seemed to cross many of them. At times, it seemed quite similar to the 1981, but that wine retained its balance while this one often seemed unbalanced. It is one thing to appreciate acidity. It is another to have the wine become shrill. I will admit it improved – up to a point – as it aired out. It most certainly drank far, far better as a food wine (try it with some cheese). But I suspect most will find that this tart wine – the Carignan dominating – with the combination of brett, acidity and thinning mid-palate is a bit much. So, even as I warmed to this, I just couldn’t love it. The acidity will likely preserve this indefinitely, but cellaring may not have as many rewards as one might hope. Drink now-2025.

Additional Information on Chateau Musar Rouge 1967

Winery Chateau Musar

Country: Lebanon

Lebanon has been producing wines for over five thousand years, and was once home to the Phoenicians – perhaps the first great viticulturists whose influence spread all over Europe and the middle east, and resulted in many of the great wine regions we know and love today. Lebanese wine culture in the modern age in mainly centered in the eastern part of the country, where the climatic conditions and terroir is ideal for growing a wide range of native and imported grape varietals. Indeed, along the Syrian border, wineries have long been cultivating many fine French grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache, which make up for a large proportion of all the grapes grown in the country. Lebanese wineries are certainly on the increase, as more demand for the country's wines has led to a relative boom in viticulture over recent years, with the number of wineries doubling in the last decade.
