Chateau Musar White 1993
Upon release it showed a brilliant yellow colour and some light green reflections. The nose very attractive, with great finesse, carrying notes of almond blossom, pear and apricot, with hints of vanilla. These characters were reflected in the palate with pear, banana and a touch of saltiness and smokiness. A very long, slightly honied finish. The wine has naturally developed and gained complexity, now with a dark amber, almost toffee colour. Pine resin and citrus peel aroma softened with a caramelised, dairy, vanilla component and rich texture. Very powerful.
“A friend served a Château Haut Brion 1993 alongside my 1993 white. At first, my wine did not show. Half an hour later, she started to show herself. An hour later, the Haut Brion had faded, as my wine got stronger and stronger” – Serge Hochar
“Medium gold in the glass, this wine smells of wet chalkboard, vanilla and camphor. In the mouth, toffee and dried citrus peel mix with dried herbs and a slightly bitter amaro quality. This bottle is showing its age more than it should. Great acidity” – Alder Yarrow, vinography.com, March 2017
