Château Gazin

The winery is located in the municipality of Pomerol in the area of the same name (Bordeaux). In the Middle Ages the estate was a farm of the Knights of St. John. It was bought in 1772 by the Feuilhade family, who are considered pioneers of local viticulture. Finally, in 1918, it became the property of the Bailliencourt family; today it is run by Nicolas and Christophe de Bailliencourt. In 1969, five hectares of vineyards were sold to Château Pétrus because they are very similar to these (clay). The vineyards cover 26 hectares of vines, planted with Merlot (90%), Cabernet Sauvignon (7%) and Cabernet Franc (3%). The long-lasting red wine is aged for 18 months in up to half new barriques. The second wine is called "l'Hospitalet de Gazin".
