The vineyards of Pomerol gradually developed between the 12th century and the French Revolution under the aegis of the knights of Saint-Jean of Jerusalem, Rhodes and Malta. Château GAZIN, which was a hamlet in the 18th century, is probably located on the site of the “Hospital of Pomeyrols”, built by the knights to receive pilgrims on the Santiago de Compostela route. This was the inspiration for the name of the property’s second wine “l’Hospitalet de Gazin”.


The terroir of Château Gazin is composed of Günzian gravels and includes, in the subsoil, blue and green clays including iron oxides (iron fats). These clays (smectites) allow a regular and moderate supply of the vine in water, characteristic of great terroirs. The clay-gravelly subsoil of the Pomerol plateau is the essence of the terroir of Château GAZIN.


The average age of the vines is 35 years. The vines are cultivated using traditional growing methods and an environmentally-friendly approach with ploughing, organic fertilizers and minimum use of pesticides (including mating disruption).


Manual harvest. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in small concrete vats, separated by grape variety and plot, the juice and skins are then left to macerate for two to three weeks.
The second fermentation, or malolactic fermentation, is then carried out, each grape variety being kept separate, either in barrels or vats, depending on the quality of the batches.

The wines are then transferred to oak barrels (50% new barrels).
They mature for eighteen months, during which the wines are progressively blended
during meticulous rackings approximately every three months.
The contact with the fine lees and the oak tannins gradually adds structure and complexity,
enabling the production of wines that can be laid down and that will improve over time.


91 points Wine Spectator
A concentrated, delicious wine. Ruby-colored, with an amber hue. Plenty of chocolate, ripe fruit and seashells on the nose. Full-bodied and very ripe, with velvety tannins and lots of chocolate, berry and tobacco flavors. Long finish.
