  • It was for many years a claret of little interest. However, in 2005 it was bought by Jean Merlaut, one of the wisest men in Bordeaux, and his talented niece Céline Villars-Loubet who owns Chasse-Spleen. Circumstances have improved further still since 2009 when more rigorous production methods were introduced
