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 2013 Rauzan-Gassies has a light, sandalwood and earthy nose, lacking fruit intensity but clean. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a spicy entry, solid tannin, blocky in the mouth but with satisfactory weight on the finish. It feels conservative, a little dry and short, ephemeral even, although it is not a total write-off by a long chalk. Just pop the cork over the next 4-6 years.
