Chateau Musar, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, 1982
Brick red in colour, bright and beginning to show some maturity. Soft fruits of strawberries, pomegranates and summer pudding. Soft fully mature and exceptionally mellow. In good balance now, although it is a lighter more elegant vintage than the 1981. Good acidity and soft tannins - chocolate and herby notes on the palate. Altogether a lighter softer vintage at Chateau Musar.
