In 1661, Pierre de Rauzan Desmezures acquired two properties for which he gave his name: Rauzan Rauzan and Ségla Gassies. Rauzan-Ségla since 1994 belongs to the famous Chanel, which has invested heavily in the property.
The 66 hectares of vines stretch for clay and gravel soils, the Margaux terroir. The planting of the vineyard is composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, Petit Verdot 3.5% and 1.5% Cabernet Franc. Rauzan-Ségla practice sustainable farming and many other precautions contributing to the quality of Château.
