The 2014 Moulis Chasse-Spleen is refined. On the nose, it is ample, frank and aromatically fresh. Mainly produced on a fleshy black fruit aromatic palette (cherry, blackberry), typical cedar accents are felt after swirling. The palate is ample, vibrant, elegantly structured on creamy and delicate tannins. The grain is fine and precise. The finish is persistent. This wine is a total success!
The 2014 Chasse-Spleen has an attractive bouquet, one that is more forward than I expected, replete with brambly red berry fruit, pain grillé and brown spice aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity and commendable weight. It perhaps does not quite deliver the freshness and precision I was anticipating after its primeur showing, although I appreciate the tangy marmalade note that complements the black fruit on the structured finish. One to watch.
