Fullish ruby. Fresh, ample, robust nose: spicy red berry fruit, cedar, violet, tea leaf. Linear, cool and stony at first. The frame fills out nicely into a fully-textured, meaty palate: mineral-infused mulberries. Ripe, peppery tannins. Very good grip and vibrant acidity; this is firmer than Chasse Spleen in ’95 and is the better wine as a result. In a good place right now. Very good and now à point. Now – 2016.
