Monsieur de Rauzan acquired the seigniory and vines at the beginning of the reign of Louis XIV. Thanks to his wine-making expertise, he transformed Château Rauzan-Gassies into one of the greatest of the Second Growths in the Margaux appellation, in the Bordeaux region. The property currently belongs to the Quié family.
Château Rauzan-Gassies reigns over a vineyard made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
Château Rauzan-Gassies 2015 is a Margaux wine that stems from a 28-hectare vineyard. The vines are 30 years old on average and are planted on deep gravel and gravelly sand.
