The 1977 Chateau Musar opens in quite a lovely way, leaning far to the charm side of the equation. It is a kinder, gentler vision of Musar. Yet, keep in mind as a context that it is already 35+ years old. With fresh fruit and a sweet tinge on the finish, it is beautifully constructed and well balanced. As with a lot of Musar, there is some bretty nuance, some crispness and some tannin. This is quite charming early on, though, a Musar that is easy to love, with relatively well integrated tannins and fresh, young fruit still. My enthusiasm dimmed a bit when it did not evolve particularly well in the glass, fading slightly with time and becoming dominated merely by crisp, bretty notes. I went from loving this to feeling so-so. Call it a compromise score. It is still pretty nice. Drink now-2020. Jun 2013, www.robertparker.com
