1979 Château Chasse-Spleen

Community Tasting Note


Wednesday, February 24, 2010 - On the nose there’s some teak, capsicum, truffles, sweet tobacco, tea leaves and tar. It is just a little malnourished in the mouth but fresh and it acts as a vinous stent when partnered with a rich and fatty cassoulet, opening all of the arteries around the heart with its brisk combination of anthocyanins and acidity. (Please note: the stent thing is just a colourful descriptor by the author, not to be taken as gospel or used in conjunction with any prescribed heart medicine).
