Description Château Chasse-Spleen 2016.

A splendid deep garnet with purplish highlights, the wine presents itself to us with a rich, intense nose of ripe black fruits. After a few Sec rounds of aeration, nuances of cedar and clove can be detected, adding depth. On the palate, the attack is full and powerful, with a warm body. A touch of acidity balances the whole and makes it more ethereal. The tannins are firm but well chiselled. Fruity notes carry us through to the relatively persistent finish.
