Château Gazin, Pomerol

Producer Profile

Château Gazin, Pomerol

Château Gazin is an estate in Pomerol.  The château was reputedly built upon the remains of the 'Hospital of Pomeyrols', established by the Knights Templar (who have historic connections with the origins of Pomerol) to look after pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela.  The cross on the label of Gazin is inspired by this.  Gazin is owned by the Dufour and Soualle families.

The 26.5 hectare vineyard  is planted to 90% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc. The terroir of Gazin is gravel with clay, iron and sand in the soil.

Tasting Notes"Deep purple-black colored, the 2020 Gazin rolls effortlessly out of the glass with upfront scents of baked black plums, stewed black cherries and mulberries, plus hints of spice cake, chocolate box and cracked black pepper. The medium to full-bodied palate has a solid backbone of firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness supporting the muscular black fruits, finishing savory. Drink 2024-2042. 92-94 points" Lisa Perotti-Brown, RobertParker.com------"I love this, extremely classic Gazin, which has depth and pep, and a jaunty feel to the black fruits. The freshness keeps the core of this wine firm from beginning to end, as do the chewy tannins. This is not an exuberant vintage but at this particular estate it suits the personality because it is always fairly old school and classic. For the first time no Cabernet Franc in the blend, just Cabernet Sauvignon. A yield of 35hl/ha. No added sulphur during fermentation. Tasted twice, there are plenty of tannins here but it is highly successful. Drinking Window 2029 - 2043 94 points" Jane Anson, Decanter Magazine------"The 2020 Gazin, which contains no Cabernet Franc this year, has a wonderful bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, crushed stone and pressed iris petal scents, very focused and precise, that really whisks you down to Pomerol. The medium-bodied palate displays fine-grained tannins and a silver bead of acidity. Very sapid with a little more dryness on the finish than its peers, which gets the saliva flowing. Classic Pomerol through and through. 94 points" Neal Martin, Vinous.com------"A quintessential Pomerol with its beautiful red and blue fruits as well as floral, earth, and sappy herb aromas and flavors, the 2020 Château Gazin is medium to full-bodied and has wonderful purity, ultra-fine tannins, and no hard edges. It shines for its purity and elegance and is just a classy, thrilling wine. 94-96 points" Jebdunnuck.com------"This is really fantastic with so much intensity and focus. Firm, linear tannins frame the wine beautifully. Polished and fine. It’s full-bodied, yet tight and posed. Complex flavors of blackberry, black olive, mushroom and bark. Persistent finish. Best of the trilogy? 96-97 points" jamessuckling.com
