The 1989 Chasse-Spleen offers chestnut and black truffle on the nose, with a touch of dried blood, comfortably revealing in its secondary aromas. The palate is wonderfully balanced, the dusty black fruit laced with cedar and charcoal, a hint of soy on the “old school” finish. The 1989 has held up wonderfully and, though maybe not quite as charming or as voluminous as the 1990, it is not far off. Tasted from a bottle bought on release and tasted at “Brat” restaurant in London. (NM)
Make no mistake about it, the 1989 Chasse-Spleen is the finest wine this property has produced since their great 1949. This is a spectacularly rich, powerful, authoritative example of the vintage that can compete with and even surpass many of the most famous names. Layer upon layer of concentrated, sweet, expansive, blackcurrant fruit is wrapped in a frame of toasty new oak and decent acidity. An awesome wine! (RP)
Big and chewy. Impressive. Dark ruby-colored, with cocoa, coffee and chocolate aromas covered by ripe fruit. Full-bodied and very rich, showing lots of chewy tannins and a long, roasted coffee and berry aftertaste.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal. (JS)
Deep ruby; rich succulent nose, quite mineral Cabernet character; soft, rich, dense, plenty of ripe tannin, fine depth and potential; good length.
