A very elegant, fresh and classical wine with a lot of energy and drive on the finish, which has a real mineral character. Great aging potential. Needs three years to soften. Real Chasse-Spleen here!

It gives a very fresh element to the otherwise dry tannins and solid structure. That acidity needs to calm down before the wine can come into balance.

The 2014 Chasse-Spleen has a more rambunctious bouquet than the 2014 Camensac tasting alongside it, with fresh and very lively black cherry and boysenberry aromas mixed with cedar and pine needles. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine bead of acidity, lovely fleshy blackberry and raspberry fruit mixed with black pepper and tobacco towards the finish. What a delicious 2014 – one that should age with style. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. -- Neal Martin

The 2014 Chasse-Spleen has an attractive bouquet, one that is more forward than I expected, replete with brambly red berry fruit, pain grillé and brown spice aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity and commendable weight. It perhaps does not quite deliver the freshness and precision I was anticipating after its primeur showing, although I appreciate the tangy marmalade note that complements the black fruit on the structured finish. One to watch. - Neal Martin
