Chateau Chasse Spleen

Located in Moulis, the smallest appellation in the Medoc, Chateau Chasse Spleen has been managed by women for the last 30 years. Its extraordinarily varied terroir consists of complementary soil types going from pure Garonne and Pyrenean gravel to a mixture of clay and limestone. The estate has 90 hectares under vine, growing 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The name? Allegedly a poet, possibly Byron, visited the Chateau in the 1820`s, and used the phrase `dispel the spleen`, which roughly translates to `chase the blues away` with regard to the effect the wine had on him. Whether tall or not, it remains a good tale and the name Chasse-Spleen was adopted in 1861.

Chateau Chasse Spleen


Undoubtedly the most well-known fine wine region on the planet, the French wine region of Bordeaux spans 120,000 hectares of vineyard and is demarcated by the Gironde Estuary and its two main tributaries, the Garonne and the Dordogne. The region is divided into the Left Bank, for vineyards located on the left bank of the Garonne River, and the Right Bank, for vineyards on the right bank of the Dordogne. Famous Left Bank appellations such as Pauillac, Saint-Julien, Saint-Estephe and Margaux are well-known for their quality, but value is also found in Haut-Medoc and Moulis. The Right Bank is well known for Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, while the upcoming regions of Lalande-de-Pomerol and Cotes de Bordeaux Castillon should not be overlooked. Close to the city Sauternes and Barsac make some of the world's best sweet wines, while the appellations of Pessac-Leognan and Graves do a fine line in rich reds and full-bodied whites. Red Bordeaux wines are made from a blend of grapes, and the permitted varieties are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and, less commonly, Malbec and Carmenere. Very broadly speaking, Right Bank wines will have a predominance of Merlot, while Left Bank wines will rely on Cabernet Sauvignon as the primary variety in a blend. White wines, both dry and sweet, are made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle.

Medoc, Haut-Medoc & Moulis

Home to some of the most highly revered and expensive wines on Earth, Pauillac is located between the appellations of Saint-Estephe and Saint-Julien in the Medoc region of Bordeaux. While the great first growths of Latour, Lafite-Rothschild and Mouton-Rothschild take centre stage in Pauillac, the commune also produces exceptional wines under its village appellation title, and around 85 percent of its production is Grand Cru Classe. Two free-draining, gravel-rich plateaus host the vineyards, requiring the vines to dig deeply into the earth searching for nutrients and moisture. The stress on the vines delivers low-yields of richly flavoured fruit, and the soils are ideally suited to growing Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up the bulk of production in Pauillac. Pauillac wines are typically Bordeaux, and their characteristics are what many die-hard fans of the region look for - rich fruit flavour, great elegance, firm structure, and the cigar-box note and hint of sweetness that sets fine Bordeaux apart from the rest.

Bordeaux Red Blend

Red Bordeaux wines are most often made from a blend of grapes, officially Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Carmenere. The term is now used across the world to emulate the style of the famous blended wines of Bordeaux, and will be made in the same style in the majority of examples. When very broadly referring to Bordeaux wines, Left Bank wines will have a higher proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon, while Right Bank wines use Merlot as the dominant partner in the blend.
