Château Rauzan-Ségla

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-Gassies and the present Château Rauzan-Ségla (but it was called Château Rausan-Ségla until 1994). The name came from the new owner Madame Ségla, a female descendant of the founder. The property remained in the hands of the family until 1866. As a result, there were several owners, including the family Cruse,

In 1994 it was transferred to the capital company Château Rauzan-Ségla SA (subsidiary of the Chanel perfume group) and major renovations were carried out. In the Bordeaux Classification in 1855 it received second place (Deuxième Cru Classé). The vineyards cover 51 hectares and are part of Cabernet Sauvignon (61%), Merlot (35%), Cabernet Franc (2%) and Petit Verdot (2%) planted. The extremely long-lived red wine is aged for 18 to 20 months in 60% new barriques. He is counted among the "Super Seconds" who would actually deserve the "Premier Cru Classé". The second wine is called "Ségla" (formerly "Château Lamouroux").
