Château Musar Rouge 2014
A very intense wine, ripe on the nose, fresh and full of red fruits, such as cherry and plum, offset with exotic spices and orange peel. On the palate a nice fullness and spice with a slight sweetness; supported by fine, ripe tannins on the finish.
An equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan
Each varietal was fermented with natural yeasts in concrete vats. Due to the high sugar content, Cabernet Sauvignon was very slow to start, and fermentation was controlled at a lower temperature than usual to ensure its completion. Carignan was also very slow, however Cinsault survived the crisis and fermented normally with elegance and style. The wines were aged for 12 months in French oak barrels before blending in January 2017 and then bottled without fining or filtration in July and August 2017. The bottles are aged in the Chateau Musar cellars before their release in 2021.
