Released en primeur earlier today at £292 per dozen in bond, 2022 Château Chasse-Spleen, from Moulis-en-Médoc, manages to over-deliver in most vintages, much like its near-neighbour, Poujeaux.
Jane Anson heaps praise on this new vintage, describing it as "Beautifully poised...excellent quality..." with "a ton of personality, and serious architecture that promises to age well". At just over £24 per bottle in bond, this is another classic property offering very good value from this vintage.
We are expecting several releases tomorrow, not least Duhart-Milon, but in the meantime, you can review all the wines released so far on our en primeur offers page, here.
Offered en primeur, landing spring 2025.

Tasting Notes"The 2022 Chasse-Spleen was showing especially well, bursting with aromas of cassis and plums mingled with licorice and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with levels of texture and mid-palate amplitude unusual at this address in recent years, this supple, charming Moulis should offer a broad drinking window. 90-92+ points" William Kelley, RobertParker.com------"Beautifully poised and well delivered black fruits here, and this is excellent quality, unusual spices of sweet cinnamon, vanilla bean, turmeric, gourmet edging, with depth and tannic grip. Great stuff, flashes of heat, but a ton of personality, and serious architecture that promises to age well. 40% new oak barrels for ageing. Now contains part of the vines from newly-purchased Château Brillette, with good quality Cabernet Sauvignon from gravel terroir, in place as of this 2022 blend vitage. 93 points" janeanson.com------"Firm and linear with medium to full body and chalky, slightly tight tannins. Hints of walnuts and dark berries at the end. 93-94 points" jamessuckling.com
