Chateau Gazin belonged to the knights of Saint-Jean of Jerusalem, Rhodes and Malta (the Tampliers) between the 12th century and the French Revolution.
The Tampliers cross is on the label of Chateau Gazin.
The hamlet constructed in the 18th century is believed to be located on the site of the “Hospital of Pomeyrols”, which gave name to the second wine of the chateau, L’Hospitalet de Gazin.
The Bailliencourt dit Courcol family owns the chateau from 1918, when it was acquired by Louis Soualle, the great-grandfather of the present owners.
The wines of Chateau Gazin are feminine and charming and worthy of aging due to the unique character of Merlot, which dominates the blend, typically for Pomerol.
In 1969, the Bailliencourt family sold 5.5 hectares of vines to Petrus.
You can taste Chateau Gazin on a tour given by one of the chateau owners. The tours are excellent and free. However, please note that there is no boutique on the premises, in case you plan to buy some bottles.
