Vintage 2017

Château Chasse-Spleen Cru Bourgeois, Moulis-en-Médoc

Product Code: MT6017RC

Tasting Notes

Characteristics . vividly blackberry, cherry and plum character. With excellent depth and concentration. A charming long keeping wine. "The attack is fresh and expressive. The structure is tightened with powerful but soft tannins at the same time, furnished by the beautiful Cabernet (Sauvignon and Franc) of that vintage. That young wine presents a beautiful length and a lot of taste for a beautiful capacity of ageing. Wait until 2025 for tasting with an ageing potentiel until 2045."
