    THE STORY: Chateau Chasse Spleen was once part of a much larger Haut Medoc estate that sold their wine under the name of Chateau Grand-Poujeaux. In 1822, their Bordeaux vineyards were divided as follows; half the property became Chateau Gressier-Grand-Poujeaux and the other half of the estate eventually became the foundation for what would become 3 different, Bordeaux estates, Chateau Maucaillou, Chateau Poujeaux-Theil and of course, Chateau Chasse Spleen. There are numerous stories trying to explain the name of Chateau Chasse Spleen. The best possibilities are poetic. The first version is, the name was inspired from a visit by Lord Byron in 1821. During that visit, Bryon was so moved, he was quoted, “Quel remede pour chasser le spleen”, which when loosely translated means, “What remedy to remove the spleen?” The other equally poetic explanation is attributed to the poem Spleen, whose author Charles Baudelaire also visited Chateau Chasse Spleen. Chateau Chasse Spleen remained the property of the Castaing family until it was sold just before World War 1 to a German family of wine merchants. After the outbreak of World War I, Chateau Chasse Spleen was confiscated as enemy property and sold at an auction in 1922 to the Lahary family.
