Description

'After the endless very hot Indian summer in 1994, December and January were freezing cold but February, March and April were very mild. Rain and hail affected the flowering in May and June but the summer of 1995 followed its normal pattern and we then expected an early maturity. The harvest began on the 12th September which was later than we expected for this vintage, however just slightly earlier than our usual start date of the 15th September. The quality of the 1995 harvest was exceptional but there was one problem - the actual size of the crop was down by more than 30% this year. Fermentation progressed smoothly and in some cases lasted until the following March and April 1996! My tasting notes at the time were extremely favourable with some curious wonder - definitely a most interesting vintage……. The Chateau Musar Red 1995 has indeed proved to be a great vintage - a very important wine with immense power and concentration of fruit. One third each of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan were blended in the third year following the harvest and it was bottled in July and August 1998. It will be a wine full of surprises; - a very great year with fabulous colour and incredible potential for living' - notes from Chateau Musar
