Owned by Nicolas de Baillencourt, very much old guard Pomerol in his approach to winemaking (and life), this handsome, large estate makes an excellent visit. Château Gazin covers 24ha (over 3% of the appellation), with plots adjacent to Petrus and L’Evangile. There is 90% Merlot, making both the first wine and an excellent second wine, L’Hospitalet de Gazin, referring to an ancient hospital for pilgrims that was reportedly on this site in the 14th century.
