The 2015 Chasse-Spleen is a wine that did not shine in barrel, however, that has been addressed now that this superb Moulis is in bottle. It has a fresh blackberry, tobacco and graphite-scented bouquet that is well defined, gaining intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and crisp acidity. It feels fresh and lively with a welcome tang of salinity on the finish. It is not as powerful as other vintages that I have tasted, yet it is very well balanced and feels sustained on the aftertaste. I now feel much more optimistic about this 2015. Anticipated maturity: 2022 - 2040.
This delivers a stylish impression from the get-go with a really nicely focused dark berry nose and hints of fresh pastry. The palate has a smooth array of bright blackberry and plum fruits with smoothly cut tannins that layer up nice and even. Classy. Best from 2022.
Tasted blind. Mid crimson. Light and fresh. Clean but not that concentrated.
Mid cherry red. Spicy and cedary on the nose, already scented. Supple and almost approachable now. Notably gentle and nicely dusty on the finish. Refined. (JH) 13.5%
The 2015 Château Chasse-Spleen is an elegant 2015 that has a complex, nuanced, and endearing style. Giving up notes of black cherry and strawberry fruits as well as lots of lavender, leafy herbs, and floral nuances, it shines more for its elegance and nuance than power and richness. It’s a beautiful wine to drink over the coming decade. 2018 - 2028
