The present day Chateau Gazin is located on the site of a hospital built in the 18th century by the Knights of St. John, hence the name of the estate's second wine, “l'Hospitalet de Gazin”, which was created in 1986. The vineyards, in addition, can be traced back to the 12th century. Gazin's superb vineyards (90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc), the most extensive of Pomerol's best growths, cover a single, contiguous block stretching across 70 acres of which 60 are planted to vine. Viticulture and vinification are carried out traditionally; no chemical herbicides are used, grapes are harvested by hand, fermentation is in lined concrete vats, followed by ageing in barriques. The wine is aged in 50% new oak barrels for 18 months.
