Château Chasse Spleen 2008

A great wine with a poetic name: rich, powerful and well structured, yet still elegant. It will benefit from several years of ageing, and should then be paired with meat dishes full of character (lamb, game, red meat).

  • Harmonious, very tannic, full-bodies with a powerful but very elegant bouquet, Château Chasse Spleen's wines have shown consistent quality for three decades. They are characterized by their strong ruby red colour and a bouquet of ripe plums. In good years, Chasse Spleen can easily rival the Médoc's best classified growths.

    Charles Baudelaire and Lord Byron are among this wine’s most enthusiastic and famous ambassadors, which has become one of the most representative crus bourgeois from Médoc. The vines have an average age of 30 years and grow on the best plots on the Grand Poujeaux hilltop in deep gravelly soil. After manual harvests, the winemaking process takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete tanks. The wines are then aged in the traditional style for 12 to 14 months in oak barrels (40% renewed each year). The wines are bottled at the château after being fined with egg whites. The Château was not included in the 1855 classification because the owner at that time, Madame Castaing, was still establishing the vineyard, following an inheritance. However, Chasse Spleen was made a Grand cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel in 1932. This status was confirmed in the revision that took place in June 2003.
