L'Hospitalet de Gazin - Pomerol 2014

L'Hospitalet de Gazin - Pomerol 2014

$110.00

Gazin, at 26 hectares, is the largest of the top Pomerol estates with clay-gravel soil and a vine age 35+ years. This property was a Domaine of the Knights Hospitaliers of St Jean, Rhodes and Malta. The present site is built where there was once a hospital, provided by the Knights for pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela. It has been owned by successive generations of the de Baillencourt dit Courcol family and now, steered by Nicolas, Christophe, Laure and Inès de Baillencourt, is right at the top of its game.

This has a dense, virtually opaque colour and its immensely stylish bouquet shows earthy, red-fruited perfume touched by a dash of oak. The palate shows lovely weight with dense generous fruit flavours, excellent concentration, spice and earthy tannin with an intense, pure and fresh finish. Enjoy with kangaroo or eye fillet, dark chocolate or aged hard cheeses. Drink now to 2025+. 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc.

L'Hospitalet de Gazin is a great source of fruity and silky Pomerol showing a fine aromatic and structure. Plenty to love in that wine.

The vineyard, averaging 25 years of age, is planted on gravel and clay soils that allow for good drainage and are particularly well-suited to Cabernet Franc. Viticultural practices and winemaking combine the best of traditional practices, with modern methods, to produce wines of considerable international renown. Pruning, crop-thinning, sorting and temperature regulation are the norm.
