2005 Château Chasse-Spleen

Community Tasting Note


89 Points

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 - Another 2005 vintage Bordeaux wine which should not had been opened at this stage; allowed to breathe in the bottle for about 30 min first; weak nose of caramel, cherries, and roses; the well-structured palate was acidic, oaky, and tannic with bitter chocolate, mixed spices, and wet wood; medium- to full-bodied; 88-89 for now; lots of potential ahead based on the solid structure and lingering finish; should improve quite a bit in 10 years.
