Carmine at the rim - shy nose of graphite and slight dark fruits. Medium bodied, a bit hard and angular at the moment, fresh and tannic - most of the fruit is buried at this point in time - leave a couple of years before trying the next bottle, not ready.
„Manga & Wine – Manga & Dine“ at Weinbar 4 Tiere in Zürich (awesome wine bar, by the way). Pairing 4, wine 2. We drank this Château Chasse-Spleen 2010 next to a Grace Cuvée Misawa 2011. The Château Chasse-Spleen was medium to dark ruby in colour and offered a tight nose of mixed berries, cucumber, graphite, cedar and some dark chocolate. On the palate the wine showed black currant, cherry, blackberry, raspberry and cucumber, paired with medium-plus acidity, medium-plus tannin and very good length. The discrete oak was well-integrated. A solid, medium-bodied Bordeaux. 88+
(Tasting Bar Sample) the young nose reveals a core of creamy ripe fruit good potential here, though seems very clean at this stage. Blueberry yogurt, creme de cassis, dark cherry, plum, bell pepper, herbs and furniture. Palate is ripe, dense and firmly tannic, repeating the herbal notes. Finish is medium plus repeating the cassis and blueberry notes. Good potential, but difficult to evaluate exactly how good this will get. In need of a good 15 years.
