2003 CHATEAU CHASSE SPLEEN Moulis en Mecoc 75cl (Bordeaux, France)
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Tasting: The famous heatwave vintage actually benefitted Chasse-Spleen it seems. There's a sense of hedonism and richness to the still virile dark fruit here but the underlying Médocian flavours are still here now this wine is at maturity.
FYI: Chasse-Spleen can be loosely translated as 'banish gloominess' which we think this example does particularly well.
