2018 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1417766 92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Chasse Spleen continues as the modern, vibrant face of Moulis, with lovely violet edging to the colour. The oak seems higher here than in its peers, accompanied by strong aromatics of damson and vanilla bean. Some rosemary hints come in after a few minutes in the glass. It's good quality and made in the estate's signature, with the freshness helping to balance the oak flourish. Clear spicing runs through the finish. (JA) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

89-91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chasse-Spleen is especially dense and fruity in this vintage. Dense red cherry fruit, espresso, mint, dried flower and licorice are all generously rendered in this gorgeous, incredibly delicious Moulis. More than anything else, Chasse-Spleen has a gorgeous sense of immediacy and pure pleasure. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

K&L Notes

88-90 points Neal Martin for Vinous: "The 2018 Chasse-Spleen has a slightly pinched bouquet at first, missing the complexity of some of its peers. It comes across tight and unresponsive. The palate is medium-bodied with furry tannins and plenty of blackberry and raspberry fruit packed behind it. Fleeting glimpses of white pepper and bay leaf emerge toward the bold, persistent finish. This just needs more nuance and finesse. It is a perplexing Chasse-Spleen that does not deliver at the level that I anticipated, but I am intrigued to see if there is improvement once in bottle."
