Reviews of purchase Chateau Gazin, Pomerol AOC, 2011
Wine shiny maroon.
Taste wine generous, luxurious, rich, with a silky texture, fine tannins and a long, heady finish.
Wine seduces a powerful aroma with notes of ripe cherries and black currants, complemented by nuances of toasted oak, pepper and caramel.
The wine will be a nice pair of red meat (especially lamb) or game. Accentuate the taste of mature cheeses.
Chateau Gazin, Pomerol AOC - exceptional wine, powerful, with an elegant structure, rich flavor and wonderful aroma. One of the best vintages from Gazin. The wine has excellent potential storage: 15 years or more. It can be drunk now, but over time it is fully revealed its wondrous beauty. Before use, it is recommended to decant the wine for about two hours to get a true pleasure.
History of Chateau Gazin very long and rich. In the Middle Ages the vineyards owned by the Order of "Knights of St. John of Jerusalem" where pilgrims stopped to rest. Antonin Fёyad Major Libourne, who held a high position in society, changed the main activity in the wine growing cereals instead. At the beginning of the XIX century manor running Fabre family was at the zenith of prosperity. At the end of the XIX century Chateau Gasen was purchased by Mr. Louis Sual. His daughter married a representative family Bayenkur di Kurkol, which belongs to the oldest old Landasa Lords of Artois region (north of France). In 1214 King Philip Augustus of France gave the family Bayenkur nickname "Coucol" (short neck) to commemorate the victory at the Battle of Bouvines.
After World War II, despite the fact that wine Chateau Gasen great demand, profit from their sale does not meet the expectations of owners. Moreover, the spring frosts in 1956 caused great damage to vineyards. When Edward Bayenkur died in 1979, only one of his heirs expressed a desire to continue the family wine business. At present, the economy is managed by Nicolas and Christophe de Bayenkur di Kurkol. Now the estate Chateau Gasen occupies an area of 26 hectares, of which 24 hectares are reserved for the vineyards on the famous clay-sandy plateau Pomerol. Charming thanks to the dominance of Merlot, the wine Château Gasen give pleasure after a few years of aging, but in most cases, should stand them fifteen or twenty years. Performance management is 100 000 bottles of wine per year.
