Château Gazin

Decanter - - POMEROL -

Gazin re­mains a top choice for Pomerol fans seek­ing value and qual­ity. The 2015 can be bought for less than the 2005, even though both are of high qual­ity. ‘That’s what wine buy­ers want,’ says Michel Falck of Stras­bourg­based mer­chant Au Mil­lésime. Co-owner Ni­co­las de Bail­lien­court ex­plains that since 2005, di­rec­tor Mick­aël Obert has fine-tuned se­lec­tion and wine­mak­ing here. Gazin’s vine­yard cov­ers 26ha on the up­per ter­race of the Pomerol ter­roir whose soils in­clude sur­face gravel and a sub­soil of the cel­e­brated blue clay with iron. Though not cer­ti­fied or­ganic, the vines are cul­ti­vated us­ing an en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly ap­proach, with or­ganic fer­tilis­ers and min­i­mal use of pes­ti­cides.
