Ruby purple. The floral nose of violet, white pepper, flint and truffle is very Pomerol. Then a little chunky and warm in the mouth, with fruit-driven flavors of blackcurrant and black cherry complicated by underbrush and cocoa. Offers good intensity and the smooth, sophisticated finish displays only moderate length.

Wow! This wine exceeded my enthusiastic barrel tasting notes. A big, back-strapping blockbuster from Gazin, in which the oak seems to be pushed into the background (thankfully), the wine offers up notes of caramelized black cherry and black currant fruit interwoven with mocha, white chocolate, subtle toast and hints of coffee beans and tobacco leaf. The exceptional aromatics are easily followed up by a full-bodied, powerful, broodingly backward, rich, intense wine with multiple dimensions, layers of fruit, and a sensational finish of close to a minute. This is one of the all-time great efforts from Gazin. It should be forgotten for 6-10 years and drunk over the following 30 to 40.

About This Producer


Perched, quite ideally, on the Pomerol plateau smack in between the vineyards of Petrus and L'Evangile, Chateau Gazin traces its origins back to the Middle Ages. In fact, the chateau is located on the site of a hospital built by the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem used to host pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella. The current managers are Nicolas & Christophe de Bailliencourt dit Courcol, whose family has owned the estate for over a century, and in 1988, J.P. Moueix took over exclusive distribution rights, which elevated Gazin from a period of relative mediocrity.

Today, with 24-hectares under vine growing Merlot (90%), Cabernet Sauvignon (7%) and Cabernet Franc (3%), Gazin produces wines in tune with its Pomerol terroir that are notoriously difficult to evaluate young and often greatly improve with several years in the bottle. The wine has earned scores in the mid-nineties in recent vintages, and Robert Parker has commented that despite some fantastic efforts, Gazin "still seems to be under most consumers' radar."
