The Story

Grapes are hand-picked. Fermentations last about 3 weeks in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks, with frequent pumping-overs and addition of yeasts. Wines are afterward transferred to oak barrels, of which 25% are new, for 14-18 months aging. They are fined and filtered prior to bottling. No press wine is added into the grand vin.

The vineyards of Rauzan-Gassies are situated on alluvial terraces. Sixty percent of them are situated just around the chateau itself, and the remaining vineyards (gravelly soils) border Chateau Margaux, Palmer, and Lascombes.

Deep colour. Intense dark cherry, cassis aromas with musky Turkish Delight notes. Well balanced wine with rich cassis plum fruit, supple long fine firm tannins. Lovely mineral length and fruit persistency. Delicious wine. 95 points
