Grand Cru Classé en 1855
Located a stone’s throw from the village of Margaux, Château Rauzan-Ségla consists of a 70-hectare patchwork of vineyards reflecting the diversity of soils in the appellation, and forming a priceless treasure.

Consisting primarily of alluvial gravel, the terroir is ideally suited to viticulture and features perfect drainage. It also reflects the best that each grape variety has to offer.

1661, Pierre Desmezures de Rauzan purchased an estate which he named after himself. The wine quickly acquired a fine reputation in France and abroad. This was confirmed in the famous 1855 classification, when the château was included among the second growths.

The estate was bought by Chanel in 1994, and work in the vineyards and cellars is done with the utmost care to produce a great and remarkably complex wine with fine ageing potential.

Vineyard workers at Rauzan-Ségla prune the vines, tie them up, pluck leaves, thin bunches, etc. to produce the best possible fruit. This is transformed into a powerful, long-lived wine with the greatest of care and attention.
