Chateau Chasse-Spleen Moulis 2016

  • wa92-94


Available for:
Deep garnet. The wine is limpid and shiny. Before stirring: The nose offers fragances of black cherries and fresh red roses. After stirring: rose pepper and mulberry. The attack is ample and vivid. The mouth is voluminous on a satin, tight and fine frame. The finale is persistent with liquorice and cocoa powder notes. Wait until 2022 for tasting with an ageing potentiel until 2045.

The 2016 Chasse-Spleen has a very elegant bouquet with neatly integrated oak, the terroir really showing through here, hints of cedar and smoke emerging with time. The palate is fresh as a button on the entry. It is cut through with a superb line of acidity that engenders superb tension, the tannins firm but fine with a subtle marine influence towards the persistent finish. This is a fabulous Chasse-Spleen, the best I have ever tasted from the estate. It could end up at the top of by banded score.
