Château Rauzan-Ségla

The winery is located in the municipality Margaux in the eponymous area in the Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). In 1661 a large estate was bought by the merchant Pierre des Mesures de Rausan (Rauzan) of the de Gassie family. This resulted in the wineries in the episode Château Desmirail. Château Marquis-de-Terme and Château Rauzan. At the time of the French Revolution (1789-1799), in 1792, the Château Rauzan entered the two wineries Château Rauzan-Gassies and the present Château Rauzan-Ségla (but it was until 1994 Château Rausan-Ségla) shared. The name came from the new owner Madame Ségla, a female descendant of the founder. The estate remained in the hands of the family until 1866. As a result, there were several owners, including the family Cruse,

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