Chateau Musar Red - 1998
The cooler 1998 has an elegant Cinsault dominance; the color is lighter and more delicately perfumed than a typical vintage. Despite this initial impression, the wine is deceptively powerful with vibrant acidity and fresh, soft red fruit flavours, and a very long, spicy finish.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan
Fermentation progressed smoothly, although slightly quicker than usual, maceration was up to four weeks. The wines were racked into French Nevers oak casks in August 1999 and aged for twelve months, then blended in September 2000 and bottled in August 2001.
