Dream and Dine - - Wine -

In youth: yel­low-gold, sub­tly oaky, and creamy-tex­tured, rich yet dry and in­tensely cit­rusy, with hon­eyed nuances. Wholly unique, the style has been de­scribed as re­sem­bling ‘dry Sauternes' or ma­ture white Graves. Chateau Musar Whites de­velop tawny hues and mel­low spicy char­ac­ters as they age. The cel­lars at Ghazir holds bot­tles of this wine dat­ing as far back as 1954. Chateau Musar White is fer­mented in French oak bar­riques (from the for­est of Nev­ers) for 9 months, bot­tled and blended at the end of its first year and re­leased seven years after the har­vest.

Con­cen­trated and com­plex, Chateau Musar Whites show at their best after sev­eral hours' ‘breath­ing time', and should be served ‘cel­lar cool' at around 15°C. They ex­cel with pâtés (es­pe­cially foie gras), ril­lettes, seafood dishes and will match spicy food as the wine has such in­tense flavours.
