2015 Chasse-Spleen from the Moulis appellation is more masculine than in previous years. However, the wine is still very charming. The nose reveals a very light toasted character - which will fade while aging - before giving way to elegant black fruit and balsamic notes. The wine gradually settles in the mouth to reveal a beautiful intensity, definite wood characteristics. Somewhat austere, the wine still displays lovely tangy aromas of wild strawberry. The wine has a good length, with a very nice structure. Time will be on the side of Chasse-Slpeen 2015, and this will make beautiful wine for laying down.:
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Chasse Spleen has a slightly introverted bouquet: earthy red berry fruit and dried herbs, perhaps conservative in the scheme of things. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of chewiness on the entry, good body though needing more finesse and delineation to develop through its élevage. A stocky and somewhat saline Chasse Spleen that needs 3-4 years in bottle.
