1983 Chateau Musar

Post by AHB » 11:27 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Big on the nose with dusty ash and lots of fruit. The fruit is sweet and beautifully balanced. A gorgeous and exquisite mature red wine. 94/100.

Drunk at the 2016 Doty Cup.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

Alex,
I have a 1984 Musar, the mythical "never produced" vintage. I've not had one yet but I hear it is quite good. I will try and keep my sticky fingers off of it until we meet and can share it.

It would be great to try it. Thanks!
