Chateau Rauzan Gassies 2 cru Margaux 2015
For Rauzan Gassies, frankly, have never lived up to their classification as a 2nd-ranked man. Cru Slot. This is despite their otherwise well-located fields, some of which border Château Margaux itself. In 1983, the company hired Jacques Théo as director of Château Rauzan-Ségla and Emile Peynaud as an oenologist. And in 1986, the castle emerged as a state-of-the-art vineyard with 20 new stainless steel tanks and a newly renovated cellar. Château Rauzan-Ségla benefited from these huge investments for a few years. Then the parent company was hit by financial problems and Château Rauzan-Ségla was put up for sale.
In 1994, Chanel bought with the Wertheimer Château Rauzan-Segla family, and soon after that a new renovation programme was launched. The vineyards were drained and a 15-kilometer laid pipe network is now in place. Two plots of Petit Verdot were planted and 3 hectares of vines were grafted over with Merlot. Today there are 51 hectares of production with an average total production of 200,000 bottles of Château Rauzan-Segla and the castle's 2nd wine Ségla. The castle cellars have been adapted and the old large fermentation tanks have gradually been replaced by smaller tanks – adapted to the size of the individual plots. Since the 2004 harvest, the grapes have been sorted on two 10-metre long vibrating tables so that each grape is checked before it moves on to fermentation. The storage cellars have been completely renovated and a new room has been built for bottling. Labelling machines have been installed and Château Rauzan-Ségla is now completely independent throughout the production process.
After careful and gentle renovation, carried out according to the original plans of 1904, the castle itself now looks again as it was centuries ago.
