The winery is located in the commune of Margaux in the Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux) in the area of the same name. Its immediate neighbour is the famous Château Margaux. In 1661, the merchant Pierre des Mesures de Rausan (Rauzan) bought a large estate from the de Gassies family. From this the vineyards Château Desmirail, Château Rauzan-Gassies, Château Rauzan-Ségla and the actual Château Marquis-de-Terme were created. In 1762 it came into the possession of the Marquis de Terme François de Peguilhan by marriage as a dowry from Elizabeth de Ledoulx d'Emplet. During his visit to Bordeaux in May 1787, Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), then US ambassador to France, paid a visit to the estate.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
