Chateau Gazin 2008
|Raisin||Bordeaux Blend, Cabernet Franc, Merlot|
Gazin’s 2008, a structured, masculine style of Pomerol, reveals a dense plum/purple color in addition to a gorgeous perfume of licorice, mocha, black currants, plums and Asian spices. Firm, dense and full-bodied with stunning concentration, it represents a hypothetical blend of its two near-by neighbors, Lafleur and Petrus. Congratulations to Gazin on another fabulous effort that still seems to be under most consumers’ radar.
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
Toasty, smoky aromas and flavors frame fig and currant fruit flavors that are dense on the palate, supported by full tannins. Notes of mineral and dark chocolate emerge on the finish. A big wine with focus and depth.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
