An essential reference of the appellation of Pomerol, Chateau Gazin boasts ancient origins. In 1917, Chateau Gazin was acquired by Louis Soualle, the great-grandfather of the current owners, the De Bailliencourt dit Courcol family.
The superb 26-hectare vineyard is located on Pomerol’s high terrace of clay-gravelly soil. Chateau Gazin is the largest estate of the famous appellation on the right bank of the Bordeaux region.
The mild winter led to an early bud burst. In the spring, the cool, rainy weather spared the vineyard from frost. The vine cycle slowed down, promising an average vintage. The very hot and dry summer accelerated the cycle again, allowing the fruit to ripen fully in time for the harvest. The vines managed to withstand the heat thanks to well-drained and refreshing clay soils.
