Chasse Spleen 2006
Tasted in London mid-April and at the UGC. This is a fine Chasse-Spleen with a classic, quite reserved nose of blackberry leaf, hedgerow and a touch of freshly rolled tobacco. Very fine definition. The medium-bodied palate displays good depth of fruit, blackberry, black pepper and quite chewy tannins. Perhaps lacking some finesse and breeding, but that is compensated by fine balance, purity and a persistent, blackberry, earthy finish. Very fine. Tasted April 2007.

Not much definition and overbearing greenness of fruit. Very austere and rather light fruit. Pinched green tannins on the finish. Light and rather inky. Just a bit more pinched than the other Moulis.
