Château Gazin is located on the north-eastern part of the Pomerol plateau, between Châteaux Petrus and Lafleur-Gazin, on a terroir of Gunzian gravel with a subsoil of blue and green clay with iron oxides. The vineyard is managed with an environmentally friendly approach: ploughing, organic fertilizers, minimum use of pesticides and manual harvests. Traditional techniques and modern knowledge are applied in equal measure both in the vineyard and in the winery, to ensure consistent high quality and expression of terroir. After the manual harvest, the grapes are vinified in small concrete tanks before being aged for 18 months in oak barrels. L’hospitalet de Gazin, the second wine of Château Gazin, has been produced since 1986 from the fruit of younger vines. An elegant, supple, charming wine, it can be enjoyed after just a few years in bottle.
Calm, measured, drily rich, profound. The fruit is beautifully extracted with big, broad shouldered flavours, chewy and rich but with a burst of compressed freshness on the finish that lifts the weight so well. “Neighbouring the fabled Pétrus, this wine is an example of the amazing quality this region produces.”
