Red berry fruit on palate - medium to full body. Nose - dry leaves, compost, cassis. Structured tannins, still firm. Good acid balance - medium. Medium finish. Feel as though I am drinking it too early, though not convinced that it is going to yield that much more.

(Château Chasse-Spleen) Dark red violet color; appealing berry and cassis nose; tasty, structured cassis and berry palate with depth and a menthol note; medium-plus finish (55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot)
(Chateau Chasse-Spleen Moulis) A moderate depth of colour. Sweet and creamy, very primary fruit on entry, rich and expressive, with a seam of buttery crumble for good measure. Nevertheless a rather simple and straightforward palate, although it presents an appealing texture, nice extract and a ripe, charcoal-edged structure. All the necessary components are here, nicely balanced. Good potential.
