Gazin

Château Gazin is a relative large single block Pomerol estate. Their label design bears the Knights Templar’s cross due to a historic connection. After indifference in the 70s and 80s, major renovations in 1996 have lifted the quality dramatically. The estate shares a boundary with Château Pétrus, Château Lafleur-Pétrus and l’Evangile. In fact, in 1969 Gazin actually sold 5.5ha to Pétrus. Chateau Gazin shares one of the highest levels of elevation in Pomerol, along with Pétrus. At its peak, Gazin reaches up to 40.5 meters. Inside their single block of vines, their best terroir is perfectly placed close to the middle of their holdings, which sits on blue clay. It is clear that his terroir has the potential to produce Merlot-dominated wine at the very highest level.

Gazin 2005 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96+)

The 2005 Gazin is a big, masculine, full-throttle Pomerol that comes closer to the style of a Pauillac than some of the other Pomerols. Nevertheless, this wine is locked and loaded, with an inky plum/purple color, stunning concentration, a boatload of tannin, and unlimited upside potential. Sweet cassis, plum, vanilla and truffle notes are followed by a dense, deep, profound wine with blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, high extraction, and a multi-layered texture. This is a long distance runner, even for a 2005, and probably won’t even be close to full maturity for another decade. It should easily last 30 or more years.

Gazin 2008 (1x300cl)

Wine Advocate (94)

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. The 2008 should drink well for 20-25 years.

Wow. Best ever from here? Powerful aromas of chili, crushed blackberries and rose water. Full body, with juicy, soft and velvety tannins. This goes on for minutes. Fruit forward. Try in 2018.

Gazin 2014 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (94)

The 2014 Gazin was stubborn and broody when tasted in bottle, but give it a few swirls and there comes forth gravel and black truffle scents alongside sultry black fruit. These aromatics are so engaging and involving, drawing you in towards it charms. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and taut with great precision and sappiness towards the focused, almost symmetrical, black truffle-laced finish. This continues Gazin's fine run of form, a great Pomerol from an estate predisposed these days to create sophisticated, classic wines.

Gazin 2016 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (95)

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Gazin features a beautifully perfumed nose of violets, Ceylon tea, cigar box, sandalwood and fallen leaves over a core of plum preserves, kirsch and blackberry preserves plus a waft of aniseed. Medium-bodied and elegant, with compelling restraint, it has a seductively plush texture, finishing with bags of poise, perfume and persistence.

A dense and flavorful red already with dark-berry, seaweed and wet-earth undertones. Full body and round and chewy tannins. Green olives on the finish. Serious for the vintage.

Vinous (95-97)

The 2019 Gazin is tightly wound at first and needs coaxing from the glass. Broody dark berry fruit, truffle and smoke eventually emerge, flanked by a discrete marine influence. The palate is very promising with saturated tannins that belie the structure of this Pomerol. The freshness is very impressive, lighting up the senses. The finish is imbued with wonderful tension and traces of iron on the aftertaste. Quintessentially Gazin, this is a superb wine.

This is really fantastic with so much intensity and focus. Firm, linear tannins frame the wine beautifully. Polished and fine. It’s full-bodied, yet tight and posed. Complex flavors of blackberry, black olive, mushroom and bark. Persistent finish. Best of the trilogy?
