Adjacent to the Agricultural University of Montagne Saint-Émilion, the property of Château Vieux Ferrand is managed by Mélanie Chenard, an agricultural engineer specialised in viticulture.
"This is the superstar of the appellation. Chasse Spleen was one of six properties decreed a ‘Cru Bourgeois Exceptionel’ in 1932. The wine is full-bodied, firm and long-lasting, but with a richness and quality of tannins. There have been few, if any, disappointments in the last 25 years."
