Hochar Pere et Fils – Chateau Musar
We have always considered Hochar as the training wheels version of Chateau Musar. Using the second pick of grapes from the musar vines and adding a little Grenache to soften the edges makes both the price and taste more accessible.
The hardest winery to write tasting notes for, it has Bordeaux stylings with a Rhone temperature and features grapes from both. A heavy structured wine with hot, peppery side notes. The best of both worlds.
