Winemakers Note

The vineyards of Pomerol gradually developed between the 12th century and the French Revolution under the aegis of the knights of Saint-Jean of Jerusalem, Rhodes and Malta. Château GAZIN, which was a hamlet in the 18th century, is probably located on the site of the “Hospital of Pomeyrols”, built by the knights to receive pilgrims on the Santiago de Compostela route. This was the inspiration for the name of the property’s second wine “l’Hospitalet de Gazin”. It's at the beginning of the 20th century that Louis Soualle, great-grandfather of the current owners, the Bailliencourt family, acquired Château GAZIN, the management of which his descendants now provide all their care. The descendants of Louis Soualle represent the 5th generation of vineyard owners both on the paternal and maternal side. Key Points - Family owned and managed for the past 5 generations - The back label changes every year - Alcoholic fermentation without added sulfur - Small production - A wine of great quality and very well rated Area 26 ha Certification HVE 3 Yield 35 hl/ha Vinification Gazin has been equipped with a glycol cooling system to transfer the perfectly sorted and destemmed grapes to our concrete vats at low temperature, ready for cool pre-fermentation maceration. Fermentations Alcoholic fermentation is conducted without sulphur, using biocontrol techniques (although 15-16-month barrel ageing naturally requires the use of sulphur). For 50% of the first wine, malolactic fermentation takes place in new barrels and in vat, while the other 50% is aged in barrels previously used for one vintage.
