Château Rauzan-Gassies was part of the huge Rauzan estate which was divided up towards the end of the 18th century. The name "Gassies" comes from the noble Gassies family of which Gaillard de Tarbes was feudal lord in 1530. The "Rauzan" part of the name comes from the famous Counsellor at the Bordeaux Parliament in the mid 17th century. Monsieur de Rauzan was able to promote his already famous wine at the courts of France and England. The château was purchased by the Quié family in 1945.Most of the vineyards are located around the château on a former river bed of the Garonne. The average altitude is 15 to 18 m. The soil is just about a complete cross-section of the local geology: deep gravel, sandy gravel and sand.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2010 is a very strong effort from this estate, which is situated next to the other, better-known Rauzan, Rauzan Segla. Dense purple, its sweet notes of underbrush, forest floor, licorice, black currants and a hint of lead pencil shavings are followed by a lush, ripe, surprisingly fleshy and succulent wine that is much more evolved and forward at this stage than when tasted from barrel. I thought this wine would need more cellar time, but it is actually approachable in spite of its size, richness and density. Give it several years of cellaring and drink it over the following 20+ years.
