A powerful and balanced Haut-Médoc wine. The year 2018 was mixed. The changing weather was overtaken by the dry summer allowing the berries to reach good maturity. L'Héritage Chasse Spleen 2018 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), completed by Merlot (35%) and Cabernet Franc (5%).

From the estate’s youngest vines and the same fabulous gravel terroir, L’Héritage de Chasse Spleen is more precocious than its predecessor, the Moulis star. In order to increase the quality of its production, Céline Villars, the owner, performs a very selective sorting and tearing of the weakest plots. The vineyard, consisting of four parcels, is mainly located on deep and gravelly soils, and includes very old vines, since the average age of vines and 35 years. Cabernet Sauvignon represents 73% of the estate, Merlot 20% and Petit Verdot 7%. This famous house, whose name is due to an illustrious poet passing through the region of Moulis in Médoc, has been able to highlight its terroir and the quality of its wines. Manual harvesting, controlled fermentation and aging in traditional oak barrels bring this typical velvety and warm wine.
