Château Chasse-Spleen (2005)

New

Dark crimson. Rather open, leafy nose with good lift. Lots of alcohol. Broad and sweet and a bit like stewed raspberries. Not unpleasant if not exactly classic. Fine tannins and lots of fruit and therefore a pleasing whole. Relatively relaxed and unforced, though pretty pinched tannins on the end. Quite concentrated palate with a dry finish after ripe fruit. Still embryonic - more youthful than many of its peers. Serious, very dry.
