Chateau du Gazin Canon Fronsac 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Château GAZIN wines are a very typical product of the Pomerol terroir. Their lavish richness offers a wide aromatic range of black and red fruits which harmonises with their intense purple or garnet colour. They also frequently offer hints of mint, plum, chocolate, coffee or liquorice, a bouquet of almond, toast, tobacco and vanilla. Maturity gives them a nose of spices, truffles, undergrowth and gamey scents : fur, leather... Their taste is characterised by their silky tannins, their balance and concentration, enhanced by a delicate oaky note.

The development of the Pomerol vineyard in the 12th century up to the French Revolution of 1789 around the commandary of the Knights of St John of Jerusalem, Rhodes and Malta is confirmed by very old documents from the Great Priory of Malta in Toulouse. The present day Château GAZIN, which was once a village in the 18th century, is located on the site of the hospital built by the Knights to host the pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella. The Château GAZIN vineyards cover 64.2 acres in a single lot, with 56.8 acres under vines, located on the renowned clay-gravel plateau of Pomerol. The estate can produce up to 100,000 bottles a year. A second AOC Pomerol wine “l’Hospitalet de Gazin”, was created in 1986 in order to reserve the best of the harvest for Château GAZIN. The grapes are fermented in small cement vats. The wine is aged for 18 months in oak barrels (50% new) according to the Bordeaux tradition : malolactic fermentation in casks, rackings to separate the fine wine from the lees, fining with egg whites and, if necessary, light filtration. After bottling at the château, the wine is shipped in wooden cases to the consumers worldwide. 80% of Château GAZIN production is exported. The Château Gazin is a member of the Union of the Great Growths of Bordeaux and of the Academy of Wines of Bordeaux. Read less

Hailing from the lesser known appellation of Fronsac, Chacirc;teau du Gazin proves to be every bit as potent as its more famous neighbors from Pomerol and Saint-Eacute;milion. It has deep fruit flavors, toasted mocha and a sensuous, supple texture that envelops the entire tongue. An amazing value, this wine would pair beautifully with leg of lamb, roast beef or a succulent, medium-rare steak.

Smaller than Fronsac, the Canon-Fronsac appellation occupies higher and steeper terrain. The resulting wine is stronger and more substantial. This wine has a dark ruby color, with purplish hints that turn garnet with age. A concentrated nose has notes of raspberry, strawberry and red currants that develop with time into stewed prunes, leather and mocha.

Full-bodied with notes of plum, cherry and anise, this Bordeaux has the tannin and flavor to stand up to red meat, game or a variety of cheeses.

A very sturdy wine with nuances of blackberries and bramble flavors. Mouth entry shows off more fruit accompanied by a little dust and vanilla. This blend of Merlot and Cabernet is a must-try! It goes beautifully with lamb pilaf, shepherd’s pie, or even a bleu cheese burger!
