Chasse Spleen

The name means to “Chase away the blues” and this engaging producer never fails to produce wine that does so. The history of the Chateau’s wine-production likely begins in the 1560s though the name possibly comes from a remark made by the poet Lord Byron applauding the wine’s restorative effect during a visit in 1821.

Chasse-Spleen 2011 (12x75cl)

Stephen Tanzer - Vinous (89)

Good deep red-ruby. Raspberry, licorice and an enticing floral quality on the nose. Lush, smooth and sweet, with lovely violet lift giving energy to the dark berry, sweet pipe tobacco and milk chocolate flavors. This broad, rather generous wine finishes with ripe tannins and very good length. (A second bottle was gamey and earthy; my projected range reflects the first sample I tried.)

Chasse-Spleen 2012 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (88)

From the Villars family, the 2012 Chasse-Spleen has a saturated ruby/purple color and chunky, medium-bodied flavors of cassis, earth and spice, It cuts a somewhat powerful personality across the palate and finishes with moderate tannin. This is a good to very good Mèdoc that will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and last for 12-15 years.
