Chateau Musar 1998
產區:Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
品種:Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan

90 points, Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate.:

The 1998 Chateau Musar is a rather prototypical Musar – lots of acidity, some brett, fine structure. It reveals a more gentle style on opening, but aeration proves how much underlying power it actually has. (That is, a lot.) ... There is plenty of power, tannin and acidity, but there is also some balance. I loved the silky texture, emphasized in this vintage. It finishes with a controlled bang. This greatly benefitted from some air, showing layers that I did not initially think it had, but it does seem a bit on the lighter side. Drink now-2030.

Chateau Musar 2000
產區:Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
品種:Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan

92 points Wine & Spirits (June 2009):

Serge Hochar's estate red has a sweet, earthy succulence in 2000 that's hard to resist, a combination of raspberry liqueur, mocha, black olives and very rich earth. It's all interwoven with chewy, firm tannins and stony minerality. The structure should hold it for another decade.

Chateau Musar 2001
產區:Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
品種:Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan

93 points Wine & Spirits (Jun 2010):

As elegant as Serge Hochar himself, the man behind Château Musar, this blend of cabernet sauvignon, carignan and cinsault is lithe yet firm. The fruit feels autumnal, in shades of rust red and ocher spice, and is saturated with a spicy, foresty fragrance. It's delicious now, ready for game birds scented with juniper berries, and should live on for another decade. 

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Feb 2010):

Nuanced by cherries and spice, it is quite delicious...The ’00 is the powerhouse bruiser, the most rustic, while the Hochar is the approachable, easier wine. This is the one in the middle, arguably the best balance of fruit and power. On the downside, this is as gamey and funky as the 2000, but the balance is different, the wine seeming fruitier and fleshier, not quite as austere. Depending on your taste, you may find that a good thing, or prefer the more powerful and intellectual 2000. This is still powerful, I hasten to add, with drying notes on the finish, but the fruitiness melds beautifully with the barnyard notes, and it is nicely supported by the tannin rather than overwhelmed. As with the 2000, this should age well, although the 2000 should age longer, and this will be a wine some will love, and some will find has too much barnyard. Personally, I enjoyed it a lot, and was just imagining how it would work with venison. Drink now-2020.

Chateau Musar 2002
產區:Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
品種:Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan

89 points Wine Spectator (Web 2011):

 A supple, beefy red, with a spicy snap to the mature flavors of dried berry. The minerally finish features toffee notes. Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Grenache. Drink now. 

Wine Enthusiast (September 2011):

Sweet on the nose with aromas of cherry and strawberry preserves, the 2002 Gaston Hochar is softer and jammier on the palate than the 2000 vintage. Prolonged aeration reveals smoke, vanilla, and toast notes and lush, smooth tannins that linger elegantly.

Chateau Musar 2003
產區:Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
品種:Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jun 2013) :

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.

Jancis Robinson (June 2011):

Pale brick. Very sweet and warm and bricks and hugely satisfying. Bring on the pistachios! Lovely bottle. So satisfying. No rough edges at all and not a silly price for a wine of this age. Dust but lots of fruit too, as well as lots of tannin. Long.

Chateau Musar 2004
產區:Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
品種:Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan

91 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2004 Chateau Musar is an equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault. This is a rather civilized, laid back Musar... Its balance, combining the nice fruit, elegant mid-palate, persistent finish and backbone, gives it a tightly wound, precise and focused demeanor. The tannins are not completely integrated, but not overly hard. They provided some welcome grip and vibrancy and never overwhelmed the wine. In the long run, they should serve this wine in good stead. Overall, it is an exceptionally graceful, somewhat modern and restrained Musar, bright, with that silky texture I saw in the Hochar reviewed this issue, while adding those layers of concentration. The cherry on top is the intensity of fruit flavor – bursts of delicious and juicy fruit on the finish, admittedly nuanced by some of the gamey notes I see here so often. Call it raspberry flavored, though, because the fruit is delicious. The gamey notes were in fact moderate and, at least for my taste, not an issue. As this rather subtle Musar aired out, I liked it more and more. I’ve had Musars that were bigger, burlier, more rustic and more astringent. Here, the subtle start was unremarkable, but it gathered steam, showed remarkable finesse and then won me over. This will certainly do better with food. Drink now-2021.

Chateau Musar Blanc 2007

品種:Obaideh, Merwah

產區:Bekka Valley ,Lebanon

In youth: yellow-gold, subtly oaky, and creamy-textured, rich yet dry and intensely citrusy, with honeyed nuances. Wholly unique, the style has been described as resembling ‘dry Sauternes’ or mature white Graves. Chateau Musar Whites develop tawny hues and mellow spicy characters as they age. The cellars at Ghazir holds bottles of this wine dating as far back as 1954. 

Grapes and vines
Seven years in the making, Chateau Musar White is a blend of ancient grape varieties Obaideh and Merwah, indigenous to the mountains of Lebanon and said to be related to Chasselas Chardonnay and Semillon. The Obaideh vineyards are in the foothills of the Anti-Lebanon mountains on stony, chalky soils, while the Merwah vines are on the seaward side of Mount Lebanon, on calcareous gravels. Yields are very low for these untrained bushvines: 10 - 20 hl per hectare. At high altitude (around 1400m) they are still on their own roots, among very few vineyards in the world of this calibre.

Winemaking
Chateau Musar White is fermented in French oak barriques (from the forest of Nevers) for 9 months, bottled and blended at the end of its first year and released seven years after the harvest. 

Decanting and serving
Concentrated and complex, Chateau Musar Whites show at their best after several hours’ ‘breathing time’, and should be served ‘cellar cool’ at around 15°C. They excel with pâtés (especially foie gras), rillettes, seafood dishes and will match spicy food as the wine has such intense flavours.

Storage
To keep the wines showing at their best, bottles must be cellared in darkness, lying on their sides and not subjected to unnecessary movement or fluctuations in temperature.

Decanter 如此形容Musar : "放眼全世界沒有任何其他人在葡萄酒世界有著如此不可思議困難且危險重重的工作,但卻能夠克服它。在這樣的環境底下完成釀酒已經是難能可貴了,而能釀出傑出的酒款,更是卓越不凡。"

創立於1930年的是由莊主 Gaston Hochar 與避居黎巴嫩的波爾多釀酒師Ronald Barton所建立,1959年第二代Serge Hochar 在波爾多大學釀酒系畢業後回到酒廠接手工作,讓 Chateau Musar 開始大放異彩。 1975年開始,黎巴嫩陷入長達15年的內戰,在動盪不安,烽火四起的局勢下,Serge依然堅持繼續釀酒,帶領員工在槍林彈雨中,完成葡萄園的照顧與採收,除了1976與1984年之外,Chateau Musar仍然克服萬難,生產品質卓越的葡萄酒,這樣的精神讓 Serge Hochar在1984年被Decanter雜誌選為第一屆 "Decanter Man of the Year".

Vilafonte series M 2013

Region:  Stellenbosch, South Africa

The Wine Advocate : 91 points

Tasting Note: “Kirsch, black cherry, dark chocolate and cassis all abouund on the nose and palate. This is enticing and very plush with a good cherry and damson fruit core. Granular with ripe tannins and although there is clearly high levels of glycerol and sweetness of fruit it is all managed and held in check. The dollop Malbec gives a black pepper and spicey edge to the wine, the Merolt giving weight and roundness and the Cabernet Sauvignon keeping the structure”.

Series M takes its name from the Malbec and Merlot which predominantly define the style of this wine. Series M is sensuous wine with a firm core structure for aging. Malbec provides its black fruit aromas and fleshy texture, Merlot adds softness and red fruit aromas, and Cabernet Sauvignon provides structure.
