Chateau Musar Jeune Blanc 2011
Wine EnthusiastThere's a hint of violet perfume that permeates this dry yet honeyed wine. The palate is fruity, with abundant ripe cherry and grapefruit flavors, and layers of crushed chalk and stone lend a minerally complexity that builds on the midpalate.
Wine Advocate The 2011 Musar Jeune white is a blend of 35% each of Chardonnay and Vermentino with 30% Viognier, all fermented in tank. The winery says that the vintage produced rich and high alcohol wines (relatively, listed at 13.5%). With its unusual flavor profile, a big hit of mouth-puckering lime and green apple, typical descriptors of the Vermentino asserting itself, this may not be what everyone is expecting if unfamiliar with that grape, but once you adjust your palate to it, it is awfully nice, friendly, fruity and easy, with good acidity and a clean, tasty finish. I came to like this a lot. It is probably at peak now. Be careful on aging it. Drink now-2014.
