In my opinion,a perfectly mature bottle of wine must strike that balance between delicate,fruit-character and the secondary and tertiary flavours, which just can't be found in more youthful offerings. In this case, leather, spice, tobacco,herbaceous notes and a lengthy, complex finish.

Upon pouring the 1998 Chateau Musar there's a lovely light, brick-red core which leads to a faint, tawny tint on the rim, a visual cue to the maturity of this wine, can you believe that 1998 was almost a quarter of a century ago! (don't dwell on that too much).

The nose still offers enough fruit to draw you in and then the aromas evolve, and are dominated with the classic earthy, leathery, spice-fest that will tick all the boxes for those who crave fully mature red wines.

On the palate you're greeted by delicate, evolved plum character, but that's almost a distraction from the true purpose, as this wine is all about the secondary and tertiary flavours. It's a real fusion of dried spices, leather, wood-smoke, and a hint of tobacco, yet there remains a freshness to the wine, a streak of acidity that keeps everything in check. 

The tannic grip has softened over time and now just gently nibbles at your palate as the layers of flavour unravel on the finish.
