2011 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis (Pre-Arrival)
Big and firm tannins are palpable from the start, with a ripe and fruity core underneath. It has concentration along with the typical juicy character of the vintage.
Bright crimson. Scented and polished on the nose. Max mid weight with quite a bit of acidity. A bit severe but certainly sincere.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Good deep red-ruby. Raspberry, licorice and an enticing floral quality on the nose. Lush, smooth and sweet, with lovely violet lift giving energy to the dark berry, sweet pipe tobacco and milk chocolate flavors. This broad, rather generous wine finishes with ripe tannins and very good length.
