1998 13.5% This elegant, fragrant, Cinsault-dominated vintage arose from a cool year. Cold, rainy weather lasted until June (resulting in late flowering); summer was sunny but there was no rain. Picking began on September 9th; maturity was variable but the grapes were healthy and fermentation faster than usual. Intense aromas: very fruity, floral. Full and dry with silky tannins. The best Musar for some years. - Alain Brault,, 17th February 2006. Gamey, raspberry nose; sweet blackcurrant with a medicinal note; lovely soft, sweet fruit. ****, May 26th 2008.
