The Estate and the Vineyard
The 16th and 18th century Château du Gazin is located on the famous Right Bank alongside the appellations Saint-Emilion and Pomerol. It is located in a beautiful valley overlooking the course of the Dordogne and belongs to the Robert family since 1935.
The vineyard consists of 30 hectares of vines, 24 of which are in Canon-Fronsac and 6 in Fronsac, whose average age of vines is about 35 years. The vineyard consists of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec.
The quality of the Château du Gazin’s terroir comes from several factors:
- A calcareous clay soil on a bank of limestone with asterios that is then found on the coast of Saint Emilion
- A south-east exposure in hillsides promoting the sunshine of the vines while mitigating the strong heat of the afternoon
- Regulation of the water supply due to the subsoil and slope.
- Natural air conditioning thanks to the immediate proximity of the Dordogne
