A beautiful effort from Chasse-Spleen, this dense purple wine exhibits plenty of black currant and black cherry fruit with some licorice, roasted herbs and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied and supple, the final blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot has produced a fleshy, succulent style of Chasse-Spleen to drink over the next 15+ years. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois primeur tasting. This has a lovely ripe blackberry, cassis and vanillary nose with beautifully integrated new oak. Seamless. The palate is medium-bodied with a rich, liquorice tinged entry, sappy dark berries, a touch of soy perhaps towards the finish. Unruly at the moment, ambitious and sure to make a big impression after bottling. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

A wine that is almost salty as well as fruity. Full, juicy and lightly chewy. jamessuckling.com

Lightly firm plum skin and cherry pit notes weave through the core of plum sauce, currant and blackberry fruit, with a perfumy tobacco-tinged finish. A touch old-school. James Molseworth, winespectator.com

Dense, blackish. Creamy texture but an odd aroma. Something reminiscent of soap and perhaps some unusual oak? Pretty ripe and luscious though. If this is the quality that can be achieved in a lesser classed growth, this is a very special vintage. Just a bit drying and short on the finish. jancisrobinson.com

Beautifully extracted cassis fruit, already showing complexity, tightly-knit and will age well. Drink 2015-25. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

This medium weight red has elegant flavours, not extracted or dense. The tannins are ripe and round and there is an obvious lightness of touch in the winemaking. The tannins, which needed to be properly managed in this vintage, are well handled. Medium length. asianpalate.com
