2008 Château Chasse-Spleen

Community Tasting Note


81 Points

Sunday, October 9, 2011 - Moulis AOC. In the same vein as Sociendo Mallet, Siran, etc. - Performing at GCC level although officially unclassified. Second experiece with the CS 2008, first being at UGC tasting earlier this year. Nose of restrained berries and some cool floral elements. Q austere at first in the mouth, but develops roundness and complexity in the mouth. Medium body Acid, tannins and fruit all in great balance, only slightly bitter tannins at finish. V forward wine, only 3 years old and it's already enjoyable, may be the 50% Merlot that's responsible. Cru Classe standard as popularly asserted? Definitely, easily a 4GCC in quality (8.1/10).. http://sgbordeaux.blogspot.com/2011/06/chasse-spleen-2008.html
