Château Chasse-Spleen

This renowned property was included in the new Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel classification in 2003, and rightly so as many think it worthy of Cru Classé status. It is always extremely popular with our En Primeur buyers as it provides terrific drinking at a relatively sensible price. Produced from a yield of 50hl/ha, this is a lovely wine.

Tasting Notes

Yields of only 22hl/ha after the vineyards were subject to a massive mildew attack on the 4th July, causing an 80% loss. What had been produced is really quite delicious. A very plush bouquet with cassis, roasted cherry and vanilla sweetness. On the palate the tannins are firm and structured with a very impressive underbelly of ripe cassis fruits. This is a big wine, fleshy and smoky with a muscular style and pencil lead finish.
