Tasting Notes

The 2016 Chasse-Spleen has a wonderful, detailed, mineral-driven bouquet that feels like a coiled spring at the moment. The harmonious palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, impressive depth and a pure but grippy, convincing finish. One of the best Chasse-Spleen in recent years. Bravo! This might represent one of the best quality-to-price ratios on the Left Bank. Drink 2022-2045

Neal Martin, vinous.com (Jan 2019), January 2019

The best of the crus bourgeois have really over-delivered in 2016 and it’s a delight to see Chasse-Spleen on such outstanding form. Bramble and cassis fruit, serious tannins, coffee bean oak and lovely freshness, balance and poise. 2022-30
