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.
