History:

Rauzan-Ségla emerged in 1792 as a separate château with its own identity when the ancient estate of Rauzan was divided between two sons-in-law. The larger portion passed to Pierre Louis de Ségla: his wine was much admired and of such quality that it was ranked just behind the four First Growths and Mouton-Rothschild in the 1855 classification. But like so many others, Rauzan-Ségla was ravaged by phylloxera in the 1860s and soon slid into dilapidation. Some respite came between 1903 and 1957 under the tenure of the Cruse family - they replanted, renovated and built the château - yet it wasn't until the late 20th century that Rauzan-Ségla once again realised its potential. It is now owned by a subsidiary of the Chanel Group and has benefitted from astute investment.
