Palate

The wines of Château Muret have a solid tannic structure with spicy and fruity notes as well as a fairly long finish. Pleasant to drink young, they have a good ability to age. This is open and approachable, and would make a perfect lunchtime claret – good classicism, uncomplicated black curranty fruit and in a lighter style.
