    A delicate and smooth Pomerol red wine

    The estate

    An essential reference of the appellation of PomerolChateau 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 vineyard

    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 vintage

    A very rainy and mild autumn preceded a winter with normal levels of rainfall, the mildness of which favored an early budding of the vines. From March to mid-June, the heavy rainfall combined with higher-than-normal temperatures led to significant mildew pressure. The successive episodes of frost at the end of March and the beginning of April did not cause any damage to the vineyard of the property. Flowering, also early, took place under optimal weather conditions. The summer was hot and dry, and while the stormy days in mid-August did manage to help the vines in certain appellations, it did not replenish the water reserves of the soils of Pomerol. The clay soils of the Pomerol plateau could also not hold sufficient water, leading to a loss of volume as the harvest approached. Nevertheless, the fruit harvested showed good phenolic maturity.

    Vinification and aging

    Following the harvest, the grapes were sorted and then destemmed. The fruit was filled at low temperatures into concrete tanks, where cold pre-fermentation macerations took place. Fermentations were carried out in new oak barrels and vats for 50% of the fruit and barrels of one previous wine for the other 50%. Aging lasted 15 to 16 months.

    The blend

    The Chateau Gazin 2020 was made from a blend of Merlot (91.6%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (8.4%).

    The tasting

    Characterized by smooth and bright fruit, the Chateau Gazin 2020 seduces with its freshness, liveliness and delicate complexity.
