Chasse Spleen Moulis Btls. Original Wooden Case 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

According to Robert Parker, no less, this estate has over the last 30 yearsconsistently produced wines of Third Growth quality. In 2005, winemakerJean-Pierre Foubet has yet again displayed a sure touch in his handling of thefruit at Chasse-Spleen. A lovely plummy richness is backed by tannins which arevery present and substantial but totally ripe, creating a very harmonious,balanced wine with an almost Margaux-like fragrance.

This is relatively open with a nose of subtle toasty oak, crushed vitamin minerality, red fruits and a floral top note. With air this becomes sweetly jammy with a savory overlay of vanilla, olive, roast meat, and gravel. Medium bodied and just a touch rigid at first this remains focused with lots of soft tannins adding a chewiness and good purity of slightly jammy cassis fruit filling the midpalate. The finish is moderately tannic with subtle leather and herb notes contributing a slight rusticity to the package but it is satisfyingly complex and muscularly sinewy.

This Cru Bourgeois wine - from a very fine property of 5th to 3rd Growth quality - is worthy of some considerable praise. The tannins are approachable even today and the notes are the usual coffee, raspberry and slightly closed prune notes. All in all a very superior wine for the provenance.

A bordeaux with big tannins and complexity while not loosing smoothness and it's fruit characteristics. Let it decant a bit before drinking. Excellent
