Château Chasse-Spleen 2010


Château Chasse-Spleen from the Moulis en Médoc appellation on Bordeaux's left bank.  I enjoy this wine regularly, which is all the more surprising that I have neglected to write up a note on it previously.  The 2010 vintage is good as usual and classical left bank Bordeaux, an exercise in medium bodied blackcurrant and cedar set to charming length and drinkability.  The blend in 2010 is 55% cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot and 5% petit verdot.  Chasse-Spleen is always a good choice, and more so if you lament the prices of the cru classé.  Navigate their website with care though, as to be polite, the moving parts are many.
