Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
75cl * 14% ABV * Moulis-en-Medoc
Chateau Chasse-Spleen is one of the leading Moulis estates in Bordeaux. Although it is classified as Cru Bourgeois, it regularly outperforms many of the Medoc's more renowned classed growths.
2009 was a very warm vintage, but in all other aspects it was a standout classic and has developed into something very special. Chasse Spleen 2009 is beautifully blackcurranty, balanced with sandalwood, tobacco with some earthy, forest floor notes. Perfectly matured and ready to enjoy now or over the coming few years.
"There are a lot of concentrated flavours with rich cassis backed by firmer fresher sloe and bilberry. The rounded tannins add suppleness and the ripeness of the fruit gives flesh on the mid palate and richness at the back. Drink 2020-2040." Derek Smedley MW April 2010
Decanter magazine "Deep red, well-extracted Cabernet fruit, some fragrance and a touch leathery, still very firm, shows good structure and length, a serious wine for aging."
