Château Rauzan-Gassies

The winery is located in the municipality Margaux in the same area in Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). In 1661, the de Gassies family bought a large estate from the dealer Pierre des Mesures de Rausan (Rauzan). This resulted in the wineries Château Desmirail. Château Marquis-de-Terme and Château Rauzan. At the time of the French Revolution (1789-1799) the Château Rauzan became the two wineries in 1792 Château Rauzan-Ségla and the present Château Rauzan-Gassies. The second was bought by Paul Quié in 1946 after numerous changes of ownership. That belongs to the Quié family today Château Croizet-Bages and other wineries. In the 1980s, the famous oenologist Professor Émile Peynaud (1912-2004) engaged as a consultant. In the Bordeaux Classification in 1855 it received second place (Deuxième Cru Classé). The vineyards cover 30 hectares of vineyards and are with the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (25%) and Cabernet Franc (10%) planted. The long-lived red wine is 15 to 18 months in 30% new barriques expanded. The second wine is called "Chevalier de Rauzan-Gassies".
