In 1661, the de Gassies family bought a large estate from the dealer Pierre des Mesures de Rausan (Rauzan). This resulted in the wineries Château Desmirail. Château Marquis-de-Terme and Château Rauzan. At the time of the French Revolution (1789-1799) the Château Rauzan became the two wineries in 1792 Château Rauzan-Ségla and the present Château Rauzan-Gassies. The second was bought by Paul Quié in 1946 after numerous changes of ownership. That belongs to the Quié family today Château Croizet-Bages and other wineries. In the 1980s, the famous oenologist Professor Émile Peynaud (1912-2004) engaged as a consultant. In the Bordeaux Classification in 1855 it received second place (Deuxième Cru Classé).
