Chasse Spleen

Cru Bourgeois of Moulis en Medoc

The wines of Château Chasse Spleen

Chateau Chasse Spleen is an exceptional Cru Bourgeois owned by Madame Villars-Foubet  (Jacques Merlaut's granddaughter who bought Chasse Spleen in  1976). The castle is located 25 km North West of Bordeaux (Left bank of the Garonne), next to the châteaux Gressier-Grand-Poujeaux and Dutruch-Grand-Poujeaux. The 81Ha of vines take root in a soil composed of 80% Garonne river gravel on a chalky substratum and 20% clay-limestone. The vines are planted at an exceptional density of 10,000 vine stocks/ha. The vines are about 35 years old, they are cultivated according to the sustainable viticulture method, and the grape varieties are as follows: cabernet sauvignon (65%), merlot (30%) and petit Verdot (5%).

Chateau Chasse Spleen produces 3 Bordeaux red wines: The Grand Vin de Chasse Spleen, Oratoire de Chasse Spleen, and Heritage de Chasse Spleen (which used to be called Ermitage de Chasse Spleen until 2000) and a Bordeaux white wine: le Blanc de Chasse Spleen. The Grand Vin of Chasse Spleen is a rich wine with character, and, in recent years, it acquired great depth, and particularly silky tannins in 2015. This wine reaches its optimum between 5 and 18 years old. The second wine  Oratoire of Chasse Spleen comes from the selection of plots and tanks not selected for the 1st wine: it is therefore a lighter and more accessible wine, to be consumed within 5 to 10 years. Finally, the third wine Heritage of Chasse Spleen produced in the Haut Medoc is quite supple and silky but of medium ageing capacity, to be drunk after 3 to 7 years of ageing. The great vintages of Chateau Chasse Spleen estate for red wines are: 20152014201020092008200520032001200019901989 and 1986. The Blanc de Chasse Spleen white wine created in 1995 is marketed as a simple Bordeaux appellation. It is made up of 65% sauvignon and 35% sémillon from 2Ha of vines. It is a fairly full-bodied and woody wine, to be kept (5 to 8 years). Chasse Spleen wine is really appreciated since it is a very fine wine from Moulis, often marked between 87 and 92/100. The value for money is good, and that's what will make wine enthusiasts choose the Chasse Spleen over others, especially for the greatest vintages.
