A return to Bordeaux but in a very different style. Château Gazin is located in Pomerol, one of the two stars of the Right Bank. A Merlot backbone provides the wines produced here with rich flavor and velvety texture that stands in contrast to the more austere style of the Left bank, while not eschewing it entirely a la Saint-Émilion.
