Written Notes

Opulent, floral, violet, concentrated red fruit with hint of oak and vanilla. Long length with depth, long ageing potential from the texture of the wine. Lovely one! 94-96
  • 95p
Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black core. Well structured nose but slightly closed character, opening up with some oxygen, dark berries and gingerbread. On the palate ripe tannins, well structured with elegant body and excellent length.
  • 93p
Ruby. Fruity, blueberries, red fruits, scented and floral nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fresh, fruity, lively, detailed and long. No CS in the blend this year, seems to do it good, probably the best Gazin since the lovely 1990. 93-95

 Andrew Caillard MW, Wine Writer (Australia)  tasted  Château Gazin 2015  ( Château Gazin )

"Deep colour. Lovely perfumed wine with fragrant violet, cherry, dark plum aromas and vanilla notes. Gorgeously concentrated wine with dark cherry, plum fruits, superb graphite textures and underlying savoury oak. Finishes juicy and al dente firm. Elemental but classic in style with superb vinosity and flavour length. 95 points"

"Pure focused nose, this is as usual more sedate and firm than most in Pomerol, both on the nose and the palate. Cool fruit here mind, powerful and promising one to watch. 91-93/100 2030 2050"
