An Intense and Complex Grand Cru Classe from Margaux
Endowed with a very old vineyard, planted in an exceptional terroir, the Quie family has made severam important investments, including the installation of modern equipment that made it possible for the property to reclaim its well-deserved title.
Although the Chateau Rauzan-Gassies vineyard was not spared by the frost at the end of April 2017, the unaffected plots benefited from the most favorable climatic conditions during the summer.
With its blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (76%), complemented by Merlot (23%) and Petit Verdot (1%), the Chateau Rauzan-Gassies 2017 displays a superb profile, full of the nuances of this peculiar vintage. The wine presents a wonderful combination of power and finesse. Full of elegance, the bouquet reveals fresh and pure aromas of black berries, evolving on beautiful mineral notes that echo the terroir of origin in Margaux. On the palate, the wine develops a very dense and silky texture, emphasizing the discreet power of the tannins. The mid-palate is also quite mellow, stretching into a lingering finish. Undoubtedly one of the most successful vintages of Rauzan-Gassies in the last 10 years.
