(From 2010 Vintage) Dark garnet-red, unclouded and bright. Nose of fresh roses, cherry, pencil. Freshness. Sapwood with hints of vanilla. Silky structure around a fine, enveloping and powerful grain. Cherry and blackberry aromas. Great persistence.
This 2005 Chasse-Spleen is a good representation of a classic vintage. Quite tannic with earthy and smoky aromas. There is some fruit on the palate but earth and smoke dominate on this one. Very enjoyable, crying out for a cut of venison.
Decanter(From 2003 Vintage) Fine, fragrant Cabernet nose, nice touch of oak, classy nose. Fine Cabernet style, elegant and fresh for the vintage, good length.
