A sleeper of the vintage, and possibly the finest Gazin I have ever tasted, the 2001 reveals the best integration of oak at this property in many years. An opaque plum/purple color is accompanied by a glorious bouquet of burning embers, roasted meats, espresso, and sweet plum and blackberry fruit. Richer and deeper than it appeared from barrel, with a tremendous finish, this full-bodied, impressive effort represents a breakthrough for Gazin. There are 6,000 cases of this 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc blend. One of the more backward wines of the vintage.

This wine starts off herbal, with aromas of green tobacco, green olives and blackberries. With some air, the green character turns to coffee and blackberry. It delivers a full body with velvety tannins. Some might find it slightly overextracted but it's impressive.

Great dark color with moderately pigmented legs. A penetrating nose of high-toned plum, light game, slight spice, and wood. Gamy notes become more prominent in the wine's lengthy finish. 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet and 3% Franc aged in 50% new oak. Rather stern for a Pomerol and in need of at least a decade of cellaring, drink 2014 to 2025.
