Château
Gazin

Pomerol
The de Bailliencourt dit Courcol family
Château Gazin formerly belonged to the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem (the Order of Malta) and is one of the largest estates in its appellation. The vineyard is in a single block on the upper part of the famous Pomerol plateau.

 Gazin is currently owned by the Bailliencourt family. Descended from the Lords of Landas, the Bailliencourt dit Courcol family is one of the oldest in the province of Artois. The name Courcol (meaning “short collar”) was given to an ancestor by Philippe Auguste, King of France during the battle of Bouvines in 1214 due to his bravery in time of war. Louis Soualle, the great-grandfather of the present owners, acquired Château Gazin in the early 20th century and the estate continues to be carefully managed by his descendants.

The grapes are fermented in concrete vats and malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel, after which the wine is also aged in oak. It is then fined with egg whites and, if need be, lightly filtered before bottling at the château. Annual production (85% exported) can attain up to 100,000 bottles (including 30,000 for the second wine). Château Gazin belongs to the Académie du Vin de Bordeaux.
