What experts say  
  
 
16.5 "Balanced, with just enough oak to give interest. Juicy fruit. Standard, trustworthy claret. (RH)"
 
  
  
90 "A beautiful effort from Chasse-Spleen, this dense purple wine exhibits plenty of black currant and black cherry fruit with some licorice, roasted herbs and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied and supple, the final blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot has produced a fleshy, succulent style of Chasse-Spleen to drink over the next 15+ years."
  
  
 
90 "Very supple and refined, with a crumpled velvet feel to the smoldering bay, tobacco and mulled spice hints surrounding the core of steeped plum and blackberry fruit. Flashes of cedar and sandalwood hang through the fine-grained finish. Rustic and lovely."
  
  
17 “Beautifully extracted cassis fruit, already showing complexity, tightly-knit and will age well."
