Description

A silky and wonderfully lively Pomerol red wine

The estate

An essential Pomerol landmark, Château Gazin has a very long history. In 1917, Château Gazin was acquired by Louis Soualle, the great-grandfather of the current owners, the De Bailliencourt dit Courcol family.

The vineyard

Château Gazin 2022 is a Pomerol wine produced from a 26-hectare vineyard planted on the high terrace of a clay-gravel terroir. This makes Château Gazin the largest of the crus in the famous appellation on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region.

The vintage

A moderately early budburst was followed by frosty spells on 3, 4 and 5 April, which had a varied impact on the vineyards. While three plots of Merlot were only slightly affected, the only plot of Cabernet Franc suffered a 50% loss. Flowering came early, following the mild weather at the end of April and during the month of May. Although the weather in April was normal, 2022 was marked by very hot weather from February until the harvest, accompanied by low rainfall apart from the rains in June and especially late August, which helped to unlock ripening. Despite the low yields resulting from this extreme climate, the quality was very satisfactory, with wines revealing good acidity, a fruity aromatic structure and superb tannins.

Winemaking and ageing

Harvesting from 2 to 13 September (Merlot), 19 September for the Cabernets. Aged for 14 to 16 months in barrels (45% new and 55% one-wine barrels).

Blend

Merlot (93%)
Cabernet Franc (3,5%)
Cabernet Sauvignon (3,5%)

Characteristics and tasting tips for Château Gazin 2022

Tasting

Colour
The wine is a pretty dark garnet colour.

Nose
The nose opens with fruity fragrances (red fruits). With aeration, the bouquet becomes more complex, with luscious notes of blackberry and peony, as well as brioche, vanilla and light tobacco from barrel ageing.

Palate
Round and beautifully fresh, the palate delights with its silky tannins, persistence and balance.
