    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.


    Its splendidly mature grapes were picked between the 10 of September (Merlot) and the 7 of October (Cabernet) over a 3-week period. The wine expresses all the ultimate expression of this favourable vintage. Gazin 2015 balances at the same time power and fluidity. It has a very expressive nose, with intense black fruit notes of blueberry and black cherry. Exposure to air emphasizes the rich aromas of the wine. The palate is medium-bodied with an elegant and precise tannins structure. The finish, with its slight smoky quality, is dominated by its fruit. The wine already offers a harmonious balance.

  • Merlot is a dark blue-colored wine grape variety, that is used as both a blending grape and for varietal wines. Merlot grapes are identified by their loose bunches of large berries. The color has less of a blue/black hue than Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and with a thinner skin and fewer tannins per unit volume. Merlot grapes tend to have a higher sugar content and lower malic acid.


    Cabernet Franc is one of the major black grape varieties worldwide. It is principally grown for blending with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the Bordeaux style, but can also be vinified alone. Cabernet Franc is lighter than Cabernet Sauvignon, making a bright pale red wine that contributes finesse and lends a peppery perfume to blends with more robust grapes. Depending on the growing region and style of wine, additional aromas can include tobacco, raspberry, bell pepper, cassis, and violets. In general, Cabernet Franc is very like Cabernet Sauvignon, but buds and ripens at least a week earlier. The vine is vigorous and upright, with dark-green, 5-lobed leaves. The winged bunches are elongated and small-medium in size. The berries are quite small and blue-black in color, with thin skins. Cabernet Franc can adapt to a wide variety of vineyard soil types but seems to thrive in sandy, chalk soils, producing heavier, fuller bodied wines there. The grape is highly yield sensitive, with over-cropping producing wines with more green, vegetal notes

  • This wine is perfect with grilled, roasted or stewed meats. A successful wine and food pairing with this red could be also with some cheeses such as Saint-Nectaire or with a multitude of Asian dishes and fish-based recipes like tuna.
