Château Rauzan Ségla
Chateau Rauzan-Segla has a long history dating all the way back to 1661. In 1691, Rauzan Segla was approximately 40 hectares. After belonging to the same family for two centuries, in 1866, Rauzan Segla was sold to Mr Eugene Durand-Dassier. In 1903, Frederic Cruse, the son in law of Eugene Durand-Dassier, took over the management of Rauzan Segla.
The vineyards were sold to the Meslon family in 1956, the year of the great frost which damaged much of the Bordeaux vineyards in the Medoc. In 1960, the Melson family sold Rauzan Segla to a British shipping company, John Holt Ltd.
By 1994 the estate was sold to Chanel, the Wertheimer brothers proceeded to restore the historic Château. The terroir of Rauzan Segla is mostly gravel with some clay in the soils. Chateau Rauzan Segla is planted to 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. The average age of the vines is close to 30 years of age.
