Producer Notes

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... More »

Bright ruby. Sweet aromas of black raspberry, dried blueberry, cooking spices and toffee. Plush, sweet and intriguing, with dried berry and dried flower flavors dominating. The long finish features chewy tannins but could use a bit more vigor.

Intensely savoury/meaty nose. Distinctive, firm, dry, takes no prisoners. Dense, savoury and long. Not flashy but holds promise. (JH)

Drink Dates 2018-2048

A big, powerful, masculine Pomerol with a style not dissimilar from Le Gay, the dense purple-colored 2009 Gazin exhibits black currant, black cherry liqueur, coffee, roasted herb, an exotic Asian spice component, vanillin, creme caramel and toasty oak in its aromatics and flavors. From a vineyard near Petrus, Le Gay and La Fleur Petrus, it is full-bodied with licorice, earth, truffle and creme de cassis in the mouth. Give this powerful, backward 2009 an additional 6-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades.

Drink Dates 2014-2028

This has it all in place -dark, smoldering tobacco and cocoa notes, rich plum sauce, braised fig and steeped black currant fruit, joined by lengthy, mouthcoating, tar-tinged grip. Still youthfully raw, though, so cellar for maximum effect.

The WS rating was when this wine was young, but it still underrates it. This is a beautiful wine, with blackberries and blueberries. Any tannic influence has now been resolved. Everything is in place and this is drinking nicely.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
