An equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault, produced by master winemaker Serge Hochar, the wine spent a year in French Nevers oak barrels.
Released in the spring of 2016, this vintage has a deep scarlet colour and a nose of blackberries, Assam tea, dark chocolate and mulled berries. On the palate, there are rich black and red fruits, especially blackcurrants, cherries, damsons and figs with warm cinnamon spice and a hint of mint. This vintage is also characterised by a smoky, earthiness. The tannins are well integrated, there is good acidity and a long, dry finish.
Enjoy with everthing from French style roast lamb to North African cuisine.
“Musar only releases its grand vin when it’s ready to drink – there are violets and ripe red berry fruit from Cinsault; spice, liquorice and burly backbone from Carignan, blackcurrant, blackberry and silky elegance from Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s ready to drink, yes but there’s no rush” Jonathan Ray –The Spectator Magazine April 2016
