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.
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.
Bought 12+1 some years ago. The one bottle was for testing purposes tonfind out if the wine could stand cellaring untill.my sons confirmation in 4 years time. Totally corked wine made this assessment impossible so now I.must rely on notes here from CT. So PLEASE help me if you can ...

(Chateau Chasse-Spleen Moulis) Really seductive fruit and some oak on the nose here. Ripe and svelte style of tannins on the palate, quite a firm structure, but with lots of fruit, flavour and character too. Good, fresh acidity. This is a delight. Another success for Claire Villars.
(Chateau Chasse-Spleen Moulis) A lovely colour here, quite vibrant and bright. Rather muted on the nose at first, but when worked hard in the glass it certainly opens out, revealing some dark, peppery black fruits with buttery overtones. Classic, restrained style on the palate, a middleweight texture, with a fine seam of tannin. Good acid structure. Ripe and nicely styled. This needs time, perhaps 4-8 years at least.
