Tasting Notes and Scores

Reviewer Score Notes
Mark Squires 92 The 1969 Chateau Musar is fresh and bretty, a big, concentrated and powerful wine that is aging brilliantly. Silky in texture (a common feature of Musar; I always suspect I can thank the Carignan and its acidity for that), it is gripping on the end and beautifully constructed. It fleshes out in the glass magically, becoming fuller and more lush. At times, this made me quite enthusiastic. It is remarkably young for its age. For all of its many virtues, however, it will, unfortunately, be the bretty notes on which many will fixate. They were very powerful and kept getting stronger. While I am not personally one to dissolve into panic at every whiff of brett, it is at a point here where it has to restrain even my enthusiasm, at least a little and at least from this bottle, which might well have been the superstar of the flight in many respects. It does detract from a rather superb performance. I’d still drink it, because it is otherwise brilliant. Your mileage may differ. Brett does tend to be subject to bottle variations – if you encounter a bottle with less intensity in that regard, it should be an even bigger winner. Drink now-2025.
