Chateau Gazin 2012
Web Price: $106.00
The bordeaux appearance is quite complete and features black reflections. Fresh aroma, full of red and black berry: raspberry, cherry, and currant, finished with a subtle woody note (50% new barrels). To the taste, the wine is ample, elegant, smooth, lingering, and refined, leaving a fresh and light after-effect, with a lingering finish, lacking in high acidity, but offering supple tannins because of how well they are aged.
95 Points Robert Parker - The 2012 Gazin has a complex, quite mercurial bouquet that seems quite confit in style at the moment. After five minutes it offers raspberry coulis, wild strawberry, marmalade and minerals. You could nose this all day! The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, beautifully balanced with a harmony all its own. It glides across the mouth, so much so that it almost belies the structure underneath. This is seriously good. A top-drawer Pomerol with long-term ambitions.
