Tasting Notes

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.

Score: 88/90Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, 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.
