STILL A GREAT DEAL!!

"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. Score range: 89-92 JM" (WS)

"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." (WA)

"The 2015 Chasse-Spleen is a wine of finesse and grace. Floral notes, spice, leather and mint are beautifully delineated in this attractive, midweight wine. All the elements are very nicely balanced. Bright, saline notes extend the finish. Readers who appreciate the finer side of Bordeaux will flip out over the 2015." (VM)

"This delivers a stylish impression from the get-go with a really nicely focused dark berry nose and hints of fresh pastry. The palate has a smooth array of bright blackberry and plum fruits with smoothly cut tannins that layer up nice and even. Classy. Best from 2022." (JS)

"The 2015 Ch√Ęteau Chasse-Spleen is an elegant 2015 that has a complex, nuanced, and endearing style. Giving up notes of black cherry and strawberry fruits as well as lots of lavender, leafy herbs, and floral nuances, it shines more for its elegance and nuance than power and richness. It?s a beautiful wine to drink over the coming decade." (JD)

"92-94. 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." (WE)
