Château Gazin

The winery is located in the municipality Pomerol in the same area (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, a pioneer of local viticulture. Finally, in 1918, it was owned by the Bailliencourt family. today it is run by Nicolas and Christophe de Bailliencourt. In 1969, five hectares of vineyards were added to the Château Pétrus Sold because they are very similar (clay). The vineyards cover 26 hectares of vineyards, which are planted with Merlot (90%), Cabernet Sauvignon (7%) and Cabernet Franc (3%). The long-lived red wine is aged for 18 months in up to half new barriques. The second wine is called "l'Hospitalet de Gazin".
