2014 Château Chasse-Spleen, Cru Bourgeois Moulis

As the flag-bearer for Moulis-en Médoc Chasse-Spleen doesn’t disappoint. Great integration of oak with its solid fruit core and spice complexity. Without being over-concentrated, this has an enjoyable mouth-filling quality and will drink very well over the next few decades.

TASTING NOTES

The 2014 Chasse-Spleen has an attractive bouquet, one that is more forward than I expected, replete with brambly red berry fruit, pain grillé and brown spice aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity and commendable weight. It perhaps does not quite deliver the freshness and precision I was anticipating after its primeur showing, although I appreciate the tangy marmalade note that complements the black fruit on the structured finish. One to watch.
