Details

Winemaker Notes: Chateau Chasse-Spleen 2016 was produced with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. A typical blend of the Medoc, using all aspects of the grape varieties, using the special characteristics to create elegant wines. The color is deep garnet, limpid and bright. Chateau Chasse-Spleen 2016 has a very expressive nose. Aromas of black cherries and fresh roses are present. After aeration, there are notes of blackberries and pink peppercorn. The mouth is voluminous with a dense tannic framework. The tannins are tight, fine and satin-smooth. The finish is persistent with cocoa powder and licorice. There is no doubt that this Moulis has wonderful potential for aging and should be opened from 2022-2045.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Robert Parker - “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.”


James Suckling - “A solid and linear young wine with blackcurrant and berry character, a medium to full body and a savory finish. Another excellent, young Chasse-Spleen.”


Wine Enthusiast - “This wine is soft and ripe, with finely integrated tannins. The acidity gives it a great lift, and is framed by those fine, dusty tannins.”

Decanter – 90pts - “The fruit here is good, ripe and carefully extracted. There is freshness and the whole thing hangs together with well worked tannins, offering excellent quality for the mid-tier price of Médoc wines.”
