Aunty Jan’s wine surprise

Leave a comment

Best known for her awesome collections of art not wine, it was with quite a shock that I fell upon an untouched case… 1979 Chateau Musar-Gaston Hochar! Gently removed the fragile cork and had a glass with breakfast.

Musty, earthy, ammoniacal, it took a bit of getting used to, but opened up after five minutes, revealing a hint ofremaining fruit. Over the hill and a subsequent bottle was cloudy, but great excitement to come across such a rare relic.
