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. (RP)
A classic 'left bank Pomerol'! It's Cabernet Franc heavy, from gravel soils, and it does really well in this year - the classic, austere style with tight tannins going the extra mile in terms of persistency. An excellent result from Gazin. (JA)
Wow. What a nose. So much fruit and smoky, chocolate and crush dark fruits on the nose. Full body, with layers of velvety tannins and a medium finish. I wish it had a little more on the center palate. But it’s still outstanding. Give it two or three years of bottle age.
The 2008 Gazin has a perfumed bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, black truffle and iris, broody at first but responding immediately to aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, initially a little disjointed and I would have liked more depth and concentration to come through on the linear, straight-laced finish. It is a fine Gazin albeit one superseded by recent vintages. (NM)
Toasty, smoky aromas and flavors frame fig and currant fruit flavors that are dense on the palate, supported by full tannins. Notes of mineral and dark chocolate emerge on the finish. A big wine with focus and depth. (TM)
Toasted oak gives a charred aroma to the nose, plus baked black fruits and smooth texture. Supple, fragrant and flavoursome with a long persistence driven by impressive fruit concentration. After the oak-dominated start, this turns into a solid, lengthy wine with plenty more potential. (RH) 17+/20
