    A Margaux fine wine by Rauzan-Gassies

    The estate
    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 Rauzan-Gassies into one of the greatest of the Second Growths in the appellation of Margaux in the Bordeaux region. The property now belongs to the Quié family.

    The vineyard
    The 28-hectare vineyard of Chateau Rauzan-Gassies is planted in deep gravel and gravelly sands in the Margaux appellation. The 35-year-old vines are leaf-stripped before a manual harvest.

    The vintage
    The 2019 vintage was characterized by strong climatic episodes. Marked by a temperate heat and a few episodes of rain, 2019 yielded very ripe Merlot and fresh Cabernet, whose blend is very promising.

    The winemaking
    Harvest from September 17 to 24 for Merlot and September 25 to October 12 for Cabernet Sauvignon. Vinification in stainless steel vats from 12 to 120 hectoliters. Thermo-regulated fermentation. Daily pumping-over.

    The ageing
    12 months in French oak barrels. 50% new barrels. Traditional racking with a cane. Fining with egg whites.

    The blend
    Cabernet sauvignon (72%), merlot (28%)

    The tasting
    The Rauzan-Gassies 2019 offers a blend that delivers great generosity and a delicate density. The tannins are tight and delicious.
