    A powerful and well-balanced Haut-Medoc wine

    The property
    The unique name of the Chateau Chasse-Spleen estate evokes Charles Baudelaire, author of "Fleurs du Mal," who recognized the power of wine to treat one's melancholy. Located in the Moulis appellation, in the heart of the Medoc, the Château Chasse-Spleen vineyard extends over 90 hectares. L'Heritage de Chasse-Spleen is the second wine of the estate.

    The vineyard
    In the middle of Haut-Medoc on the left bank of Bordeaux, the 20-hectare vineyard of Chateau Chasse-Spleen is planted in sandy-gravelly soils upon clay-limestone sub-soils. The vines reserved for the production of L'Heritage de Chasse-Spleen are between 5 and 35 years old.

    The vintage
    The year 2018 was a year of contrasts. The changing weather in the spring was followed by a dry summer, allowing the fruit to reach a good level of ripeness.

    Vinification and aging
    The harvest took place under good health conditions, and the fruit was rigorously selected. The vinification was carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel and cement vats. The wine was then matured on oak.

    The Blend
    The Heritage de Chasse Spleen 2018 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot(35%) and Cabernet Franc (5%).
