A great wine that can already be seen, but it's wiser to wait 4 or 5 years if possible!

Merlot 30% - 68% Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot 2%

2011: The Cabernet Franc is not in the mix, because it was not rich enough, and lacked structure. It was too dry maturing, so I stayed out of the final wine. Usually usually present at 5 or 6%.

The Winery

Château Rauzan Gassies

Château Rauzan Gassies

While the noble house of Chevalier de Gassies is one of the oldest in Margaux, the history of the vineyard of Chateau Rauzan-Gassies began in the 18th century. The chateau was created by Pierre Desmezures de Rauzan, a négociant but also a farmer at the noble house of Latour. This function allowed him to understand the rights accorded to him, and to embrace his heritage. He bought a number of parcels of land from his neighbours and over a period of 20 years, by the end of the 17th century, he created two beautiful vineyards, that of Rauzan-Gassies but also that of Pichon Longueville - two future grands crus classés. The wines of Rauzan-Gassies have always enjoyed a certain renown in England, thanks to Mr Rauzan, who traveled to London and sold the wines in person on the banks of the Thames. Mr Rauzan, who was also a member of parliament in Bordeaux, is remembered today on the label of the chateau, in the form of the wings that protect the bunches of grapes. At the time of the 1855 classification, the wines of Rauzan-Gassies were given second growth status. In 1946, the chateau was bought by Paul Quié, a wine merchant from Bercy (the centre of the Parisian wine trade at the time) who followed his father into the profession. He followed numerous owners, such as Mr Rhoné-Péraire, who in the 19th century was particularly successful in building up the reputation of the wine. Since 1968, his son Jean-Michel Quié has taken charge of the property, assisted since 1995 by Jean Louis Camp, oenologist and technical director, and since 2001 by his children Anne-Françoise and Jean-Philippe Quié.

On the nose, red fruits dominate, accompanied by sweet spices and a note of truffle characteristic of Margaux
Equally fruity, the palate is fresh and balanced, supported by well-integrated oak and fine tannins and tight Elegant and right Margaux without asperities, built for aging well

4/5

I took it with a connoisseur of wines.
Cherry colour. Aromas of leather and tobacco pipe. A taste of nothing in particular just wine.
A good Château Rauzan Gassies who goes well with beef stew.
