2010 Bordeaux Primeurs – Chasse Spleen, d’Aiguilhe, Trois Croix, la Garde

by Charles Lea

Chasse-Spleen scores as follows. I did not feel able to give it a score based on my one tasting, where the sample may have been old. Neal Martin and Jancis definitely liked it.

16 (Jancis Robinson MW OBE (www.jancisrobinson.com))
88 – 90 (Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate)
92 – 94 (Neal Martin’s Wine Journal, erobertparker.com)
89 – 92 (James Molesworth, The Wine Spectator)
88 – 89 (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com)
****17 (Steven Spurrier, decanter.com)

Also out today Stephane von Neipperg’s Castillon d’Aiguilhe, which聽I really liked this year, but where oh where are the big guns? This is very slow, which just means an ungodly rush later – don’t get trampled.
