Tasting Notes

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.

Neal Martin, vinous.com, June 2020

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Gazin sashays out of the glass with pretty black cherries, kirsch and raspberry pie scents followed by hints of wilted roses, aniseed and damp soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has lovely restraint with loads of earth and mineral nuances taking center stage, framed by rounded tannins and soft acidity, finishing long and savory. 2024 - 2040

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (July Week ), July 2020

A tight, focused red with blackberry and blueberry character, as well as chocolate. It’s full and compact with soft, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Harmonious.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, June 2020

The 2019 Gazin is succulent, racy and forward. Super-ripe red cherry, kirsch, cedar and new leather are all laced together here. Deceptive in its mid-weight feel, the 2019 is racy and forward, with plenty of the vintage's radiance on display. Best of all, the 2019 should drink well right out of the gate.

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, June 2020

Vibrant ruby in colour with bright and fresh aromatics of red plums and cherries on the nose. Fine and lifted on the palate, this is fresh, crunchy and sappy. Juicy red fruits and accents of sweet spices linger through to a fine and chalky finish.
