The 2016 Chasse-Spleen has a very elegant bouquet with neatly integrated oak, the terroir really showing through here, hints of cedar and smoke emerging with time. The palate is fresh as a button on the entry. It is cut through with a superb line of acidity that engenders superb tension, the tannins firm but fine with a subtle marine influence towards the persistent finish. This is a fabulous Chasse-Spleen, the best I have ever tasted from the estate. It could end up at the top of by banded score.

This wine is soft and ripe, with finely integrated tannins. The acidity gives it a great lift, and is framed by those fine, dusty tannins.

A solid and linear young wine with blackcurrant and berry character, a medium to full body and a savory finish. Another excellent, young Chasse-Spleen.

Dark crimson. Scented and rather voluptuous. Not forced. Medium weight. Very classic. Pimento and satin somehow! Bone dry. Tannins maybe just a tad too much? Just slightly sour on the rather sudden end.

Quite bright, this medium/full bodied, fresh, sharp, crisp, cassis and cranberry filled wine is made for lovers of older, classically styled Bordeaux. The wine leans to the cedar, tobacco leaf and piquant red fruit oriented side of the style range.

Moulis

The Moulis appellation is located to the west of most of the Médoc's municipal appellations: its vineyard starts 3 km from the Gironde and extends to the west.This continental situation testifies to the effective precedence of the Moulis vineyard. In fact, in the 14th and 15th centuries, the vines were planted in the interior regions rather than on the edge of the estuary.
The winegrowers of the time preferred to avoid the dangers of the humidity of the river and the fogs, which favored decay and decimated the vineyards.Even today, the Moulis vineyard enjoys this advantageous situation, allowing it to wait for the optimal maturity of the grapes.
