Château Chasse-Spleen (375ml) 2005

$90.00 per bottle

Stock: Available

"This is the superstar of the appellation. Chasse Spleen was one of six properties decreed a ‘Cru Bourgeois Exceptionel’ in 1932. The wine is full-bodied, firm and long-lasting, but with a richness and quality of tannins. There have been few, if any, disappointments in the last 25 years."

88-90 A beautiful offering from this top-notch Moulis estate, the deep ruby/purple-tinged 2005 Chasse Spleen offers up scents of cassis, minerals, and flowers. Medium-bodied, moderately tannic, rich, and potentially outstanding, it should be at its peak between 2012-2020+.

16/20 Bright crimson. Hidden but intriguing nose suggesting hidden depths and some complexity. Pretty classic left bank red Bordeaux with lovely 2005 velvety texture but really sappy dry, but not drying, tannins. The most classic of this flight of 2005 Médocs?
Decanter Magazine 17/20 Fine concentrated colour, lovely fragrance, lifted Cabernet blackcurrant fruit, fine purity, dense, finely grained tannins, long and poised. Drink 2009-20.
