Château Gazin Rocquencourt: Vineyards
Château Gazin Rocquencourt sits close to the D214, a busy road which heads west out of Léognan, in the appellation of Pessac-Léognan. This places it directly to the northwest of Château Malartic-Lagravière, which also skirts the periphery of Léognan, so it is not too far for the proprietors to travel between the two vineyards. To the south is Château Haut-Bergey and then Domaine de Chevalier, as well as Château de France and Château de Fieuzal. To the west and north there is woodland and sprawling suburbs, viticulture a much less prominent activity here.
The estate amounts to 30 hectares of land, on which there are 22 hectares of vines. The land slopes gently up away from the road to the château, which sits on a rise between two small streams which flow down towards L’Eau Blanche, the river which runs through the centre of Léognan.Please log in to continue reading:
