Avis d'expert
89 / 100

Tom Cannavan (01-1998) Good colour still, though browning. Elegant nose of sweet, flowery fruit. Lots of cedar on the palate makes it very savoury. Still suffused with black cherry, damsons and plum fruit. Nice, sweet finish too with fine, drying tannins. Excellent 1981, though needs drinking soon.

(10-1994) Drinking beautifully now, showing coffee, tobacco and chocolate character. Full-bodied and firm with silky tannins and a long rich finish.

(4-1994) From its deep-coloured youth, maturing evenly, light style but constantly attractive. Certainly endorsed recently and much more appealing than the classed growths alongside.

Chasse Spleen

Chasse Spleen

On the road lined with Chateaux of the Médoc on the way to Pauillac, just outside the village of Arcins on the left just after the famous inn the Lion d'Or, is the vineyard Chasse-Spleen. Chasse-Spleen produces one of the most outstanding wines of the Medoc, and certainly the Moulis. Situated on four parcels of serious Quaternary 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, Chasse-Spleen produced under the inspired direction of Céline Villars-Foubet a firm  and structured wine, with the robe deep and brilliant, which develops aromas of cassis and red fruit with hints of chocolate and cedar on the tannins, elegant result of a combination of modern and traditional winemaking.
