As the proverb says, great terroirs face the water, and this is true for Chateau Rauzan-Segla since it is next to the Gironde. A true mosaic of terroirs, the Chateau Rauzan-Segla vineyard benefits from an exceptional location. The river plays a role in influencing the weather and it is also the origin of the renowned Garonne gravel that is deposited along the banks. This gravel captures heat from the sun during the day and then uses it to keep the soils warm at night, which helps the vine ripen its berries. In addition to the deep gravel, the Rauzan-Segla vineyard has fine gravel ridges and clay-limestone soil. These poor soils are perfect for growing the typical Medoc grape varieties. The symbolic Left Bank black grape variety, Cabernet Sauvignon, represents most the vines with Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc making up the rest. An excellent terroir for exceptional wines, Chateau Rauzan-Segla wines are a model of the Margaux appellation.
