Château Chasse-Spleen 2014 Barrel Sample Red (Moulis-en-Médoc)

91–93. Barrel Sample. There is a strong line of acidity that cuts right through this wine. It gives a very fresh element to the otherwise dry tannins and solid structure. That acidity needs to calm down before the wine can come into balance.

Château Chasse-Spleen 2003 Red (Moulis-en-Médoc)

  1. $24

Always one of the star crus bourgeois, Chasse-Spleen has produced a 2003 that manages to combine the rich, ripe fruits of the year with the right tannins and sweetness, along with blackberry fruits. It has the elegance and delicacy of Moulis, as well as some good intensity of flavor. A wine that will certainly age for 10 years or more.
