2015 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1251748 94-95 points James Suckling

 This is a very solid 2015 with lots of tannin and fruit at the finish. Full body. Long finish. Impressive. One of the best ever from here.  (4/2016)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

 Barrel Sample. The pure red-fruit flavors of this wine shoot through the firm tannins to give freshness while allowing plenty of space for the development of the tannins. It is a wine that shows both the fruit and the structure of the vintage. (RV)  (4/2016)

89-92 points Wine Spectator

 Enticing, with a tangy iron note to the fresh red currant and bitter cherry fruit flavors, followed by a lingering sanguine edge on the pleasantly dusty finish. (JM)  (4/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Chasse Spleen has a slightly introverted bouquet: earthy red berry fruit and dried herbs, perhaps conservative in the scheme of things. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of chewiness on the entry, good body though needing more finesse and delineation to develop through its élevage. A stocky and somewhat saline Chasse Spleen that needs 3-4 years in bottle. (NM)  (4/2016)

Vinous

 The 2015 Chasse-Spleen is an attractive, mid-weight Moulis that will drink well upon release. Understated and supple, yet also persistent on the palate, the 2015 speaks to balance above all else. Sweet red cherry, mint, licorice and wild flowers add aromatic intrigue on the inviting, nicely layered finish. (AG)  (4/2016)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
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.
