Decanter, 93 Points 

"At first taste, it seems quite developed, with notes of forest floor and a bit of chocolate. But then it opens up and shows unexpected aromas of sandalwood, curry and leather, expressing itself on the palate with elegance and restraint. It reminds me of a 1920 Rioja, in the sense that you assumed that it was close to its end, but then it gets better after four days, showing its amazing capacity to develop positively. This is a challenging wine, but lovely." 

Wine & Spirits, 92 Points 

"Serge Hochar's estate red has a sweet, earthy succulence in 2000 that's hard to resist, a combination of raspberry liqueur, mocha, black olives and very rich earth. It's all interwoven with chewy, firm tannins and stony minerality. The structure should hold it for another decade." 

Wine Enthusiast, 91 Points 

"Exceptional concentration, structure and balance mark this 11-year old blend of Cab, Cinsault and Carignan that's ripe with cassis and plums and a plume of smoke, earth and barnyard funk. Tannins subdued into a powdery softness, it's elegantly textured yet full and forward with a rich, layered complexity." 

Jancis Robinson, 

"Front-loaded with all the weird and wonderful flavours that Musar is known for: earth, leather, medicine, plenty of acetone. The palate has bright red fruit, but the dominant flavours are decidedly non-fruity, and there is a lightness here that leaves the palate a little hollow. Not one of the greatest Musars, yet still tells a memorable story."
