Chateau Rauzan Gassies startet in the middle of the seventeenth century. It was part of the gigantic Rauzan estate owned by Pierre de Mesures de Rauzan, which later over time split up into many other estates such as Chateau Rauzan Segla, Chateau Marquis de Terme and even Château Desmirail. After World War 2, in 1946, Chateau Rauzan Gassies was sold to Quie family. The Quie family continue to own Chateau Rauzan Gassies today as well as Chateau Croizet-Bages in Pauillac and Chateau Bel Orme Tronquoy de Lalande, a Cru Bourgeois estate in the Medoc.
Dense purple, sweet notes of underbrush, forest floor, licorice, black currant with lush, ripe, surprisingly fleshy and succulent wine that is much more evolved and forward. Solid, but a touch shy on range and length.
