Event Description

In this tasting we will discover seven exquisite vintage wines of Château Chasse-Spleen from the Left-Bank in Bordeaux. Seven high-class vintages spanning three decades; the 1980s,1990s and 2000s. For high-quality Bordeaux they are said to reach their maturity after an average of 20+ years becoming a glass to be savoured. This tasting is perfect in discovering the differences between old vintages from one famous estate in Bordeaux – this is a rare treat! All wines have been stored in a temperature-controlled facility up to the date of the tasting. 

Vertical Tasting
In a vertical tasting, different vintages of the same wine type from the same winery are tasted. This emphasizes differences between various vintages and see how certain vintages have developed in bottle.
 
Château Chasse-Spleen
Those that are in the know of Bordeaux Claret will tell you that this is one of those gems to be discovered. Although not a growth estate it was within the highest echelons of the Cru Bourgeois classification being classed as a Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel. Indeed Wine Doctor Chris Kissack explains 'Chasse-Spleen is well regarded, and has been ranked as high as a troisième cru (3rd Growth) by some critics.' Berry Brothers Wine Merchants go further by stating that 'it regularly outperforms many of the Médoc's more renowned classed growths." Chasse-Spleen's wine is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. It is matured in oak barriques (40% new) for 18 months and is bottled unfiltered.
