The sophistication of a red wine from Margaux, unveiled 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 Quie family.

The vineyard

Chateau Rauzan-Gassies watches over a 30-hectare vineyard in the Margaux appellation and another 30 hectares in the Haut-Medoc appellation. The 35-year-old vines are planted on deep gravel and gravelly sand.

Winemaking and aging

The manually harvested grapes were subject to plot-based vinification in 12- to 120-hectoliter stainless steel vats. Thermoregulated fermentation was accompanied by 2 to 3 daily pump-overs. Malolactic fermentation was carried out in barrels and vats. Aging lasted for 12 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which were new.

Blend

The 2020 Chateau Rauzan-Gassies is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (73%) and Merlot (27%).
