Château Rauzan-Gassies also owns 30 hectares in Haut-Médoc appellation.
This vineyard, held by the Quié family for nearly 90 years, is located in the village of Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne.
The vines are planted on the river bank’s most beautiful terroirs in a protected natural area. This green setting provides a privileged environment for the Château Rauzan-Gassies vineyard experts, who, with L’Orme, revisit the finesse of a Haut-Médoc, full of charm and delicacy.
In the blend of L’Orme de Rauzan-Gassies, merlot takes precedence over cabernet sauvignon. It brings a very pure fruitiness of plums, cherries and currants. Cabernet sauvignon expresses itself with notes of wild blackberries and elderberry cream. After ageing in French oak barrels for 12 months, the wine is round and savoury, with soft tannins and a beautiful aromatic length.
The wonderful scent of acacia flowers of this beautiful, unspoilt Médoc will sweep you off your feet!
