Château Rauzan-Gassies 2021

A refined and complex red wine from Margaux

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 Château Rauzan-Gassies into one of the greatest of the Second Growths in the Margaux appellation, in the Bordeaux region. The property currently belongs to the Quié family.

The vineyard

Château Rauzan-Gassies 2021 is a Margaux wine that stems from a 28-hectare vineyard. The vines are 35 years old on average and are planted on deep gravel and gravelly sands.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand and vinified in stainless steel 12 to 120-hectolitre vats. The thermo-regulated fermentation is accompanied by 2 to 3 daily pump-overs. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in barrels and vats. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which are new.

The blend

Château Rauzan-Gassies 2021 comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (78%) and Merlot (22%).
