Wine Critic Reviews:

Make no mistake about it, the 1989 Chasse-Spleen is the finest wine this property has produced since their great 1949. This is a spectacularly rich, powerful, authoritative example of the vintage that can compete with and even surpass many of the most famous names. Layer upon layer of concentrated, sweet, expansive, blackcurrant fruit is wrapped in a frame of toasty new oak and decent acidity. An awesome wine!Robert Parker

Sokolin 1989 Chasse Spleen Tasting Notes:

We guarantee drinking the 1989 Branaire Ducru will feel like dreaming. You won't believe such perfection exists in the real world. It'll seem to you that the triviality of our existence will only ruin its impeccable body, sitting so gracefully in your glass, with its lovely aromas sprinkled around in an attempt to seduce you.

As soon as your lips touch the glass, this attempt will turn out not to have been fruitless. Neither is this wine. Its full body is packed with delicious, very well-integrated tannins and pleasant red fruit and truffle flavor. The luscious texture will leave you no choice but to savor it with joy. This Bordeaux blend reached its peak a couple of years ago, so don't waste your time and uncork the bottle as soon as it's in your hands.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Chasse Spleen: With around 80 beautiful hectares of land at its disposal, Chateau Chasse-Spleen is a force to be reckoned with in the wine world. The gravely, chalky, clay-infused soil is perfect for the estate's chosen varietals (73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot), and that terroir is expressed with utmost eloquence and care. Drinking wines of this level of quality often feels like a conversation with the winemaker and the land, as the nuances of the winery's creative style become increasingly apparent and compelling. Chasse-Spleen wines tend to age exceptionally well, so don't be surprised when you find a very different beast in your cellar several years down the line. Save a few bottles for when your friends come over, and your parties will quickly become the talk of the town.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux Red: Picture in your mind a combination of cedar, lead pencil, blackcurrant, plum and mineral aromatics, and texture that caresses your palate like a playful lover.

Varietal Bordeaux Blend: Since its birth in France, the art of Bordeaux-inspired blends has been brought to regions like California, and Washington, where New World visionaries add their own unique spin to the formula, creating mouth-watering tributes to Bordeaux's viticultural greatness. Today, with a compelling cultural mixture, sampling Bordeaux blends is more excited than ever.
