1996 Chasse Spleen

Chasse Spleen

flagBordeaux / France

I tasted this wine on three separate occasions, and although it possesses impressive structure and enough depth of fruit, it is disjointed and exhibits an astringent finish - largely because of the high tannin level. If it fleshes out and the tannin sweetens, the wine will merit a score in the upper eighties. For now, it is a deep purple-colored, Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine with medium body, and strong tannin in both the flavor and finish. It is made in a style that will not provide much charm or pleasure for 7-8 years. It should keep for two decades. Apr 1997, www.robertparker.com
