Det berømte Château Gazin er en af appellationens største ejendomme med over 24 hektar vinmarker, der ligger i en samlet parcel på den eftertragtede øvre del at Pomerol-plateauet. Naboerne her er ingen ringere end Château Petrus og Château L'Évangile. Plateauet rummer et unikt terroir, hvor undergrunden er fed ler. Her stortrives Merlot.

Château Gazin har en fascinerende historie, og ejendommen har bl.a. tidligere tilhørt korsridderordenen Saint John af Jerusalem. Ejendommen blev dengang anvendt som hospital til pilgrimsrejsende. Det er herfra navnet stammer til slottes 2. vin ”L’Hospitalet de Gazin”

I dag ejes ejendommen af familien Bailliencourt.

Vinen lagres 18 måneder på fad, hvoraf halvdelen af fadene er helt nye egetræsfade.

Gazin producerer årligt omkring 100.000 flasker, hvoraf ca. 30.000 er slottes 2. vin. Det er en forholdsvis stor produktion for et Pomerol-slot.

With the vintage 2011, we return toward the more classic wines and we turn away from the exceptional vintages of the years 2005, 2009, and 2010. Nevertheless, the 2011 is not without its merit. Harvest were early. The merlots came in from September 5th to the 20th, and the Cabernet francs and Sauvignons came in on September 26th and 27th; we brought in a mature and heavy harvest with a yield of 43 hl per hectare. 

74,000 bottles of Château Gazin 2011 and 47,000 bottles of the Hospitalet de Gazin second wine are composed of a blend of 90% merlot, 5% Cabernet franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. A very careful selection allowed us to produce a very full-bodied wine that is rather meaty, tannic, raised for 15 months in new barrels (45%), with the rest in one wine barrels. The alcohol level of this vintage is 13.45°. The wine’s appearance is dark, brilliant bordeaux. 2011 features strong tannic notes, with red and black berry aromas: sour cherry, blackberry and black currant, a slightly toasted smell, winy, peppery, with a hint of caramel. The taste is silky, rather full, with a nice lingering effect, and a clearly tannic finish that doesn’t overpower and will soften with age. 

You can enjoy this wine today, after an hour or two of decantation, but the wine will improve with another five years (2018). It should not be kept longer than fifteen years.
