1985 Château Chasse-Spleen

Moulis en Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/27/2015 - Le Gaulois Likes this wine: 92 points

Bouteille achetée en France il y a qq années, donc, on a toujours un doute sur la conservation à savoir si elle à tenue le coup. Encore plus lors de l'ouverture, quand elle semble avoir coulée et qu'il y a beaucoup de moisissures sur le bouchon.

Malgré tout elle semble intacte!

Œil: D'un beau violacée semi-opaque avec un début de tuilé sur la frange mais à peine perceptible.

Nez: SU-PER-BE! Très fruité sur les mûres et le cassis. La vanille et un léger tabac sont aussi perceptible. La finale démontre un peu de tertiaire (mousse/humus) mais c'est très léger.

Bouche: Gotcha! La babine suit le nez! Encore en très grande forme ce trentenaire! Le fruit est soutenu (mûres) et la vanille est bien présente. L'acidité est encore bien là (moyenne-forte) et le torréfié est plus sur le mocha et chocolat noir. C'est légèrement terreux et les tanins sont complètement fondus. La finale est longue sur les épices et se termine avec un peu de feuilles mortes. Même après quelques heures le tertiaire reste pratiquement au même niveau, l'évolution vers les feuilles mortes et le terreux semble pratiquement figée dans le temps. Bravo!

Bien content d'avoir ouvert cette bouteille hier soir! Si vous en avez, ne soyez pas inquiet elle tiendra encore un 2-3 ans sans problème, voir possiblement plus!

Clear, medium intensity garnet color.

The nose is fully developed with a medium aroma intensity. Aromas of fresh red berries, dried black currants, prunes, sweet spice, cold coffee, stable floor, dry earth, gravel dust and dried herbs.

Dry on the palate with a medium acidity, medium body and medium rounded up tannins. The flavor intensity is medium with flavors of dark berries, green bell peppers, fresh herbs and cold coffee. The finish is medium and a bit watery.

This have seen it's glory days. The nose is lovely mature Bordeaux but the palate is a bit tired and dried out.

Duration: 2 hours
Food: Japanese
Condition: perfect
Aroma: cedar, violet, red fruits
Notes: a weird vintage with unexpected complexity. This is definitely a good effort for a mediocre vintage. Relatively light bodied for a left bank wine. I like this wine. Pretty well balanced. Drink now-2018.

A great wine with classical notes of currant, toasted coffee and cedar tree. Also some not that disturbing modern notes of vanilla and chocolate. Medum-bodied like we want it with elegance and finesse. Lacks a little complexity to be an outstanding wine.

a fresh bordeaux with well integrated acidity. Lacks some fruit, more floral notes and minerality. Put on some weight since last time I tasted this. Serve it a bit on the colder side in the summer sun and you'll have a winner.

Forward, soft and fresh, this wine has a bright center of black cherry and cassis, which is complicated by hints of dark, bitter chocolate and a red fruit–filled finish. 87-89 Pts

I don't hear as much about this vintage as I use to but I find it to be consistently excellent. This bottle is a perfect example. Dark color. Beautiful pure, classic flavors. Cedar, stones and red fruit. Wonderful balance. At peak. Serious QPR (91)

A number of years ago a colleague of mine who is a wine buff suggested to me that wines don't get better with age, they just change. I disagreed with him then, and this wine proves my point. As I mentioned 2 years ago, in its youth this was a very unpleasant wine. I have since watched it develop and improve to a stage where it has become an outstanding wine. Aromas of old chesterfield and a length that is just perfect. I can't agree with other recent reviewers - to me this is a stonkingly good wine. It may have a few more years left in it, but it is certainly drinking fabulously now. Easily the best non-Grand Cru Bordeaux (i have tasted) on the market. Life enhancing, in fact!

Carmine at the rim - shy nose of graphite and slight dark fruits. Medium bodied, a bit hard and angular at the moment, fresh and tannic - most of the fruit is buried at this point in time - leave a couple of years before trying the next bottle, not ready.

Often in a really good Bordeaux vintage like 2009, Cru Bourgeois such as Chase Spleen perform at an unexpectedly high level. Unfortunately, it is not true for this 2009. It is a fairly ordinary Chasse Spleen. Could it be shut down? Time will tell. I'll postpone a formal note for the next bottle I try in a couple of years.

Perfect mid weight Tuesday night sipper. Lacking complexity or personality, tastes like generic red wine. But supple round generic supple red wine. Might come around in 5-10 years? This is a $20 bottle at best.

Young nose with black & red currant, dark cherries, touch cedar and weed/herbs.
Palate fresh and fine with some sweeter silky dark fruit.
Decent low price bottle of Médoc, for early to midterm everyday enjoyment.

Starts off very well, after a rich, fragrant nose of brambly fruit and redcurrant, with a decent dollop of ripe blackberry and cassis, but the middle section is a bit compact and the finish is short. Very enjoyable, but it doesn't quite have the requisite depth or persistence. It should improve, this may be a bad patch, but I'm not over optimistic.

Great wine, classic young sweet black fruity claret. This is a great value claret that I very much recommend. Drank back to back with the 2000 (leave for a few years) and was the star of the show. With beef Wellington was a real treat. Has a glorious future.
