Produced from 90 hectares of vines, Chateau Chasse-Spleen is a Cru bourgeois from the Moulis-en-Medoc appellation. Founded by Mr. Gressier in 1720, it was not until 1820 that the property gained its nickname and later definitive name. The castle wine was “perfect to chase the spleen.” The terroir is typical of the Medoc with gravel, clay, and limestone soil. The vineyard has both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varieties.

The rich history of Chateau Duhart-Milon goes back to the early 18th century when the wines of Milon were used in the composition of Chateau Lafite’s second wines. The property earned its name from the terroir of Milon and Madame Duhart, a widow. Duhart belonged to the Casteja family, who profited from the succession. Duhart and her family recuperated the Mandavy vineyard. 4th Classified Growth, Duhart-Milon is spread over 76 hectares with Cabernet Sauvignon (67%) and Merlot (33%) planted on gravel and a limestone sub-soil. The mixture of traditional vinification techniques and modern installations is what allows Duhart-Milon to live up to its rich history.
