Second vin du château Chasse-Spleen, Héritage de Chasse Spleen s'apprécie plus jeune que son aîné. A savourer avec des mets tendre comme une belle pièce de viande rouge. More info
These wines come from vines belonging to Château Chasse Spleen, in the Haut Médoc appellation. For vintages prior to 2000, the label displayed the name Ermitage de Chasse Spleen. The wine was then renamed Héritage de Chasse Spleen.
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.
