Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau Musar Rouge 2003

Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
The 2003 Chateau Musar seems very different than years such as 1981, but maybe that’s just because it is so young, or possibly because of the vintage or an increasing nod to modernity. Either way, this is a ripe, sexy Musar. It retains its elegant mid-palate as well as lovely fruit and fine balance. There is a slightly sweet tinge to the finish, perhaps a touch of a high-toned demeanor. The lush texture and surprising richness make this a rather luscious wine by Musar standards. It is showing little but baby fat right now. Fresh and youthful, it is just a friendly puppy today. I’m not so sure it is in the winery’s preferred style, but it should be a very enjoyable vintage for consumers. Showing not a trace of age, it has a lot of potential and a long life ahead. It may yet be entitled to further upticks in score, but let’s be a bit conservative at the moment. Drink now-2035.

Additional Information on Chateau Musar Rouge 2003

Winery Chateau Musar

Country: Lebanon

There are few countries in the world which have a more fascinating or ancient viticultural history than that of Lebanon, which archaeologists believe has been producing wines for over five thousand years. Indeed, the Phoenicians who once lived on the Lebanese coast were responsible for spreading viticulture around Europe several millennia ago, long before the Romans or Greeks. Today, Lebanese wines are receiving more and more global interest, and wineries are opening every year to meet the growing demand. Most of the grapes which are grown in the fertile and beautiful eastern part of the country are of French origin, although there are still plenty of indigenous grape varietals which are also becoming more popular as wine drinkers worldwide seek out new flavors and styles.
