2001 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis

SKU #1033034

89 points Wine Spectator: "Very good red with plum, berry and light mineral character. Medium-bodied, with good tannins and a long, caressing finish. Solid wine for the vintage. Best after 2005. 25,035 cases made" (03/04) From Robert Parker: "One of the two finest estates of Moulis (the other being Poujeaux), Chasse Spleen’s large vineyard is planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot. The ripe, generous 2001 is a chunky, fleshy, deep ruby/purple-colored effort revealing good body, moderate tannin, and an earthy, black currant fruitiness offering notions of minerals and tree bark. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring to shed its substantial tannin, and drink it over the following decade." (06/04) And from Stephen Tanzer: "Good medium ruby. Pretty aromas of blackberry, cassis, violet and espresso. Fresh and penetrating, with moderate flesh and sweetness..." (May/June '02)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
