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

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.
