Average critic rating: 98.8
Robert Parker: 99 Suckling : 99 TWI (Lisa Perotti Brown): 98+
A deep, pure, full-bodied wine that has vibrant flavors that burst from the glass like fireworks.
Blackcurrant, blackberries, blueberries, black and red plums are enhanced by notes of violets, anise, tobacco and cedar which spring from the glass and are accompanied by scents of thyme, tobacco and slate, punctuated with notes of garrigue.
The full-bodied palate is creamy and round, with lots of powdery tannins and very nice freshness.
The wine is dazzling, rich, pure and exceptionally expressive.
To be enjoyed around a rack of lamb with thyme.
Robert Parker: 99/100
La Muse 2019 is a blend of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec. A deep ruby purple, it explodes with blackcurrant, violets and anise, with hints of thyme, tobacco and iron, offering new nuances with each return to the glass. The full-bodied palate is powerful and refined, with lots of round tannins, concentrated freshness and an ethereal character. It is exceptionally expressive and structured and should live a very long time in the cellar.

The La Muse 2019 is a blend of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec. A deep garnet-purple color, it jumps out of the glass with bright scents of freshly crushed black and red plums, boysenberries and morello cherries, along with notes of scrubland, cedar chest, wet slate and truffles, with a hint of crushed stones. The medium to full-bodied palate is very intense and firm, with a solid wall of ripe tannins and irresistible freshness that support a ton of expressive layers of earth and dark fruit, and finishes with epic length. 2,500 cases were produced.
