Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau Musar Rouge 1981

Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
The 1981 Chateau Musar is simply wonderful, a prime time wine aging brilliantly. Beautifully structured, this has silky texture, a crisp finish and good balance, notwithstanding the serious power lurking on the finish. It seems fresh, vibrant and youthful, a great food wine, not particularly fleshy, fruity or sweet, but quite lively. It was tasted twice from different bottles (with and without Hochar) and it was fascinating each time. As with many Musars, the score matters less than the style. There are certainly things going on here that will draw divided opinions. By many modern standards, the acidity level is perceptibly high. There is a bretty aspect that will certainly turn off others. Yet, this preens in its power, its complexity and its invigorating freshness. I rather loved it and it seemed quite brilliant. Drink now-2030.

Additional Information on Chateau Musar Rouge 1981

Winery Chateau Musar

Country: Lebanon

Lebanon is a fascinating country when it comes to wine and viticulture, with a history which stretches back to the ancient Phoenicians and civilizations which traded in wine over five thousand years ago. Indeed, the ancient Egyptian Pharaohs were enormous fans of Lebanese wines, and there is plenty of archaeological evidence supporting the fact that Lebanon routinely exported their fine produce around the known world. Today, the number of Lebanese wineries is on the increase, as more and more demand for Lebanese wines results in a renewed vigor for viticulture across the country. Although most grape varietals currently grown there are of French origin, there is also increased interest in the indigenous produce of the country, which is prompting many vintners to begin processing older, more unique grape varietals once again.
