Ruby-tinged red. Highly nuanced aromas of black fruits, tar, coffee, brown spices and nutty oak. Big, sweet and layered in the mouth, with harmonious acidity giving the wine a firm shape. Finishes very sweet and long, with tannins buried in ripe fruit.

About This Producer


Perched, quite ideally, on the Pomerol plateau smack in between the vineyards of Petrus and L'Evangile, Chateau Gazin traces its origins back to the Middle Ages. In fact, the chateau is located on the site of a hospital built by the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem used to host pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella. The current managers are Nicolas & Christophe de Bailliencourt dit Courcol, whose family has owned the estate for over a century, and in 1988, J.P. Moueix took over exclusive distribution rights, which elevated Gazin from a period of relative mediocrity.

Today, with 24-hectares under vine growing Merlot (90%), Cabernet Sauvignon (7%) and Cabernet Franc (3%), Gazin produces wines in tune with its Pomerol terroir that are notoriously difficult to evaluate young and often greatly improve with several years in the bottle. The wine has earned scores in the mid-nineties in recent vintages, and Robert Parker has commented that despite some fantastic efforts, Gazin "still seems to be under most consumers' radar."
