The supple fruit of a fine red wine from Moulis

The estate
Located in the Moulis appellation, in the heart of the Médoc, Château Chasse-Spleen was founded in 1720. Its name “Chasse-Spleen,” acquired in 1863, is inspired by Anglo-Saxon culture and Baudelaire. The estate has been managed since 2000 by Céline Villars.

The vineyard
Château Chasse-Spleen boasts a beautiful terroir on a gravelly outcropping in the Grand Poujeaux area.

The vintage
After a mild autumn and a cool early winter, temperatures rose and lead to early budding. The cool and wet spring was followed by a hot and dry summer, which allowed for a homogeneous and rapid veraison. The day / night temperature differences helped the aromatic quality of the fruit, which reached perfect maturity in time for the harvest.

The blend
Cabernet sauvignon (52%), merlot (40%), petit verdot(6%), cabernet franc (2%).

The tasting
Tasted as a wine future, the Château Chasse-Spleen 2019 offers a subtle vanilla nose with deep aromas of cherries, blackberries and blackcurrant, also revealing withered rose petals. The attack of this 2019 vintage is fresh and full-bodied. The palate is voluminous and supple, with velvety tannins and some new wood at this early stage. This great Bordeaux wine is very long and persistent. The 2019 Château Chasse-Spleen will reach its peak in 2025 but can easily age until 2045.
