Château CHASSE SPLEEN Moulis-en-Medoc

The wine is brilliant and limpid. The robe is an intense garnet. Before stirring: expressive nose of red and black berries. After stirring: mulberry and rapsberry aromas mixed to any greedy notes of a soft and melted ageing. The mouth is voluminous and densely framed by a fine tanin. The finale is very persistant and very mixed red fruits.

    THE STORY: Château Chasse-Spleen is the leading Moulis estate along with Château Poujeaux. Although it is classified only as a Cru Bourgeois, it regularly outperforms many of the Médoc's more renowned classed growths. Chasse-Spleen's wine is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. It is matured in oak barriques (40% new) for 18 months and is bottled unfiltered. Chasse-Spleen wines are typically deeply-coloured and full-bodied on the palate, displaying oodles of ripe, black fruit, minerals and sometimes hints of chocolate.
