(2020) From vines that are over 70 years old, farmed organically at altitude in the Bekaa Valley, Domaine de Tourelles adopt a very much 'hands off' approach with this wine, fermenting with indigenous yeasts in their traditional concrete vats, the wine not seeing any oak. That makes for a deep crimson purple wine with an explosively aromatic nose of crushed black berries, truffle and pepper, the sleek vinous quality also suggesting concentration. In the mouth that holds true: the intensity matched by the ripe cherry, plum and blackberry depth of sweet fruit, tannins like silk and the acid balancing in a very natural and gastronomic way. A lovely wine this, available in many independents - use our wine-searcher link. Watch the video for more information and food-matching ideas.
(2019) What a lovely Bordeaux lookalike this is, blending 60% old vines Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, and aged in new French oak. There's a rich, primary black berry fruit density on the nose, but spice and hints of game and cedar too, a lovely hint of tertiary development just starting to creep in. In the mouth espresso backs up the seam of blackcurrant, a tingle of clove spice and very polished tannins give volume, and the acidity is excellent, drawing the wine to a long, fine finish.
(2010) Equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault from 30- 50-year-old bush vines, 12 months ageing in French (Nevers) barriques. Typically pale colour, and typically volatile and wild on the nose with a touch of Brettanomyces too. That's why people love Musar! On the palate a raft of sweet, deliciously mocha-enriched black berries power through. This has a soft, leafy and meaty edge to it, the coffeeish sweetness and relatively soft tannins finishing with a whisper. Brilliantly Musar in its entirely individualistic, love it or hate it way.
