Chateau Musar, advice


#121

You and me both (though I do have a couple each of slightly older Musars around; '99, '01 and '02 (You can still pick them up for just over £30).

However for a BYO a little younger would, I think, be fine.

I also have some Ksara, Ixsir and Ch St Thomas. Currently no Kefraya or Tourelles though.


#122

Has anyone been lucky enough to try the '84 ?? Just wondering…


#123

I take it, you listened to the podcast, too.

A prime example that the context matters a lot in the enjoyment of wine.


#124

Absolutely, what a wonderful and emotive story .


#125

I think I have had 1984 - but wasn’t really paying enough attention!


#126

On the subject of a Musarathon, how would Finsbury Park (very close to the station) suit? There’s a Greek Cypriot restaurant there that I intend to check out.


#127

OK, I’ve posted something in the Getting Involved section…


#128

I know the 99 is only being offered by TWS as part of the current mixed case, but for anyone looking to stock-up, I just got an email about this:


#129

Seems to be a fair amount around. I got a half case this time last year for about that price from The Sampler.


#130

Yeah, me too, it is all gone now… just too good.


#131

I have managed to restrict myself to two bottles so far…


#132

Large Waitrose in Wimbledon also stocks the 2001 at £27.99 full price.


#133

25% off for any six bottles too…


#134

and £5 off if you spend over £30… if you keep your vouchers


#135

This sounds like some hall of mirrors from which there is no escape… Good place to get stuck in, though! :smiley:


#136

Perhaps it’s as well that there are not many Waitrose in Scotland…though we do have one about 15 minutes away… :wink:


#137

God knows where these 01s are coming from. None anywhere round here, and online they’ve been on 03 for years now.


#138

They always used to be latest vintage only in my local Waitrose, then had the 2003 for the last year or two and onto the 2001 a few months back. Possibly newly released library stock?

I tried a 2001 from them a couple of months ago and it was great.
