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

After an eventful history with many owners, the estate finally came into the possession of the wine merchant Pierre Sénéclauze from Marseille in 1935. Today his three sons Jean, Philippe and Pierre-Louis Sénéclauze run the business. In the 1855 Bordeaux classification, the estate was awarded fourth place (Quatrième Cru Classé). The vineyards cover 38 hectares in the communes of Margaux and Cantenac and are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (35%), Petit Verdot (7%) and Cabernet Franc (3%). This long-lasting red wine is aged for 18 months in barriques that are one third new. The second wine is called "Les Gondats de Marquis de Terme".
