    Certainly one of the more successful in this category. With a nice volume of black berry flavours and powdery tannins, this flows through to a balanced finish. A very good example from this excellent, affordable estate. CP

    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. 2022 - 2045

    The 2016 Chasse-Spleen has a very elegant bouquet with neatly integrated oak, the terroir really showing through here, hints of cedar and smoke emerging with time. The palate is fresh as a button on the entry. It is cut through with a superb line of acidity that engenders superb tension, the tannins firm but fine with a subtle marine influence towards the persistent finish. This is a fabulous Chasse-Spleen, the best I have ever tasted from the estate. It could end up at the top of by banded score. Drink Date 2021 - 2045

    The 2016 Chasse-Spleen is dense, powerful and super-concentrated. There is not a whole lot of subtlety, that much is obvious. Even so, the 2016 is quite pleasing. Scents of graphite, smoke, crème de cassis, licorice and dark spice infuse the racy, potent finish. The 2016 is a big boy. This hearty, flavorful Moulis will drink well with minimal cellaring. Tasted two times.

    The fruit here is good, ripe and carefully extracted. There is freshness and the whole thing hangs together with well worked tannins, offering excellent quality for the mid-tier price of Médoc wines.

    Rather powerful and hard but with a delicious, mouth-watering fruit quality, this is a structured Chasse-Spleen and it is full and imposing on the palate. What it lacks in grace it makes up for in effort.

    Dark crimson. Scented and rather voluptuous. Not forced. Medium weight. Very classic. Pimento and satin somehow! Bone dry. Tannins maybe just a tad too much? Just slightly sour on the rather sudden end. Drink 2023-2032

    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

Producer

Château Chasse-Spleen

For many years Château Chasse-Spleen was undervalued. Though its official classification is Cru Bourgeois, many specialists believe that Chasse-Spleen equals a third or fourth growth in quality.

Region

Moulis

Moulis is an appellation in the south of the Haut-Médoc in Bordeaux. There are many different soil types, including clay, gravel and limestone, which results in a variety of wine styles. Its wines offer good value for money and are generally well structured, often with some of the perfume of Margaux to the east.
