A blend of Grenach, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cinsault.
Hochar Père et Fils Red has been described as the ‘second’ wine of Chateau Musar, and it does bear some resemblance to the ‘Grand Vin’: rich, spicy and profoundly fruity, with a mellow quality derived from lengthy oak- and bottle ageing
When young, the wines are robust and aromatic, with baked plum, warm earth, leather, thyme and dark chocolate characters. With age they become tawnier and spicier.
Try with roast pork loin and garlic, sauteed chicken a la Bordelaise (with potatoes and fried onion rings) or an artichoke and wild mushroom salad.
