Château Chasse-Spleen: Vineyards

Château Chasse-Spleen sits on the outskirts of the hamlet of Grand Poujeaux, well east of the villages of Moulis-en-Médoc and Listrac-Médoc. The neighbours are rather easy to identify, many of them linked to Château Chasse-Spleen and the hamlet of Grand Poujeaux, either through a shared history, or at the very least a shared name. These include Château Branas-Grand-Poujeaux and Château Granins-Grand-Poujeaux, all based in and around the hamlet. Just to the north is Château Poujeaux itself, and Château Maucaillou, both once part of the Castaing empire.

Château Chasse-Spleen

The vineyards of Château Chasse-Spleen lie scattered around the château and cellars. There are three distinct terroirs to the Moulis appellation, these being from west to east Granins, Cap de Haut and Grand Poujeaux. As you might imagine the hamlet of Grand Poujeaux sits on the terroir of the same name, which is predominantly gravel, with some chalky elements. Approximately 80% of the vineyard sits on these gravelly terroirs, with 20% featuring more clay, or even limestone.
