Gorgeous on the nose with a blast of fresh red fruit, violets and smoke, Musar's Jeune is unabashed in its youth and verve compared to the more austere Gaston Hochar line. The palate boasts the same deeply concentrated fruit, but with a freshness and acidity that lingers to a smoky, leather-accented finish.
