Description/ Tasting Notes

Dense purple, sweet notes of underbrush, forest floor, licorice, black currant with lush, ripe, surprisingly fleshy and succulent wine that is much more evolved and forward. Solid, but a touch shy on range and length.

Winery Info/ Brand



Chateau Rauzan Gassies startet in the middle of the seventeenth century. It was part of the gigantic Rauzan estate owned by Pierre de Mesures de Rauzan, which later over time split up into many other estates such as Chateau Rauzan Segla, Chateau Marquis de Terme and even Château Desmirail. After World War 2, in 1946, Chateau Rauzan Gassies was sold to Quie family. The Quie family continue to own Chateau Rauzan Gassies today as well as Chateau Croizet-Bages in Pauillac and Chateau Bel Orme Tronquoy de Lalande, a Cru Bourgeois estate in the Medoc.

Region Info/ Origin



The Margaux appellation encompasses the village of Margaux and the neighbouring villages of Arsac, Labarde, Soussans and Cantenac. Being the most southerly of the Médoc's appellations, it has the thinnest soil in the region with the highest proportion of gravel that allows the soil to drain very well. The wine from this area are very susceptible to weather effects during the growing season. Encountering all seasons with adequate irrigation, relatively good rainfall and good amount of sunlight, the crop yields a bountiful harvest year-on-year. The winery takes pride and value that captures the essence that reflects their unique brand.
