*Musar Jeune Rouge

£13.50

Musar Jeune Rouge 2014 is a deep scarlet colour with a beguiling, smokey, black fruit nose, showing rich blackberry and mulberry notes tinged with spice. A good concentration of pure, black and red cherry fruit on the palate is supported by a juicy, fresh acidity. With its soft tannins, it is balanced and long and best enjoyed in its youth.

Description

The Château Musar Jeune Red is a blend of old vine Cinsault (50%), Syrah (35%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) grown in organically certified vineyards. The climatic conditions, in particular the heat, this year favoured the Syrah which showed a great concentration of colour, taste and aromas. The Syrah vines were planted in 2001 and they now have enough age to provide greater complexity and power.

After fermentation and a period of maturation, the three grape varieties were blended in March 2015, then rested in concrete vats before being bottled during the summer.

Chateau Musar has become something of an icon wine over the last decades yet such is its price these days for mature vintages, this youngster gives everyone the opportunity to see what all the fuss is about before breaking the £20 barrier to invest in the real thing. It is made with the same care and affection but is like a watercolour painting to an oil. Both can be great art but one is more imposing than the other at times.
