1979 Château Chasse-Spleen

Community Tasting Note


Thursday, October 11, 2007 - Surprisingly deep red, with bricking, but didn't look as old as it was. Invitingly complex left bank nose. Evolved quite a bit over the evening, and never settled into a single place, and that was fine. Lots of currant, minerals, finishing into some really nice complex mint notes. Not in any way drying. Not a blockbuster, and maybe not even excellent, but very good...

Simply opened and served, drunk over about 2 hours at Crush restaurant, which is a pretty amazing place.

I have had a slew of '79s, 81s, and 83s, and this was certainly up there towards the best...this was better than a 79 Sociando we had recently...
