Located on the upper terrace of Pomerol, Chateau Gazin has a history which dates back to the twelfth century. Louis Soualle acquired the estate in the early twentieth century, and today his descendants carefully manage the property. The chateau has 26 hectares across a single holding in Pomerol. The soil on the surface-level is Gunzian gravel, with layers of blue and green clay underneath. The average age of the vines is 35 years, and the vineyards are planted with 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc.

The wine

At  Chateau Gazin, all the harvests are done by hand, as soon as each parcel achieves its ideal ripeness. The fruit is carefully sorted three times (once in the vineyard and twice in the winery). Afterward fermentation, the wines are aged in oak barrels (50% new) for eighteen months. The wines at Chateau Gazin are known for their elegance and complexity. The nose is typically characterised by red and black fruit, along with a touch chocolate, liquorice and toast. As the wine matures, more spicy notes tend to evolve.
