Closure: Cork

On the "Route des Chateaux" in the Medoc, just after the village of Arcins, to the left after the famous inn the Lion d'Or, are the vineyards of Chasse Spleen. South of the gravelly brow of Grand Poujeaux, this vineyard benefits from a remarkably well drained subsoil and is superbly well exposed to the hot summer sun.

Tasting Note: A classic, muscular, rich yet elegant effort made in a medium to full-bodied, concentrated style, the 2000 Chasse-Spleen possesses abundant quantities of minerals, earth, black cherry, and cassis fruit. It will need 4-5 years of cellaring, and will keep for two decades. (85-86 points)
