The estate is located in the commune of Margaux in the area of the same name in the Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). In 1661, a large estate was bought from the de Gassies family by the merchant Pierre des Mesures de Rausan (Rauzan). This subsequently gave rise to the Château Desmirail, Château Marquis-de-Terme and Château Rauzan estates. In 1792, during the French Revolution (1789-1799), Château Rauzan was divided into two estates, Château Rauzan-Gassies and the present Château Rauzan-Ségla (which was called Château Rausan-Ségla until 1994). The name came from the new owner Madame Ségla, a female descendant of the founder. The estate remained in the hands of the family until 1866. There were subsequently several owners, including the Cruse family.
