(From 2009 Vintage) Beautiful blueberry, black raspberry and cassis fruit as well as incense and graphite jump from the glass of this inky ruby/purple-colored wine. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, dense and rich, this is one of the stars of Moulis in 2009.
Chateau Chasse-Spleen (Moulis) 2006: This has some nice fruit on the nose, with a rather dusty character. A dry and austere palate follows, with a firm although ripe tannic grip. It has good acidity, but moderate fruit, and is rather classically styled. A lot of structure here for the substance of the wine. I don't know how well this will come together. From a tasting of 2006 Bordeaux at two years of age. 14.5+/20 (October 2008)
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.
