Château Rauzan-Gassies was part of the huge Rauzan estate which was divided up towards the end of the 18th century. The name "Gassies" comes from the noble Gassies family of which Gaillard de Tarbes was feudal lord in 1530. The "Rauzan" part of the name comes from the famous Counsellor at the Bordeaux Parliament in the mid 17th century. Monsieur de Rauzan was able to promote his already famous wine at the courts of France and England. The château was purchased by the Quié family in 1945.Most of the vineyards are located around the château on a former river bed of the Garonne. The average altitude is 15 to 18 m. The soil is just about a complete cross-section of the local geology: deep gravel, sandy gravel and sand.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at Château Rauzan-Gassies vertical at the property. The 2006 Château Rauzan-Gassies, a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, has more black fruit than red, just a touch of mint with cedar coming through strongly with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a little more substance on the mid-palate than the 2005, with a straight-forward but nicely focused finish. It is not a memorable Margaux, but it is a satisfactory 2006 to drink over the next 8-10 years. Tasted June 2015.
