Neal Martin Vinous November 2019

The 2018 Chasse-Spleen has a slightly pinched bouquet at first, missing the complexity of some of its peers. It comes across tight and unresponsive. The palate is medium-bodied with furry tannins and plenty of blackberry and raspberry fruit packed behind it. Fleeting glimpses of white pepper and bay leaf emerge toward the bold, persistent finish. This just needs more nuance and finesse. It is a perplexing Chasse-Spleen that does not deliver at the level that I anticipated, but I am intrigued to see if there is improvement once in bottle.

230, The Wine Advocate

The 2016 Chasse-Spleen has a very elegant bouquet with neatly integrated oak, the terroir really showing through here, hints of cedar and smoke emerging with time. The palate is fresh as a button on the entry. It is cut through with a superb line of acidity that engenders superb tension, the tannins firm but fine with a subtle marine influence towards the persistent finish. This is a fabulous Chasse-Spleen, the best I have ever tasted from the estate. It could end up at the top of by banded score.
