Good full red-ruby. Musky dark berries and roast coffee on the expressive nose. Sweet, lush and rich, with a pliant texture to the rather carnal flavors of currant, plum, truffle and cedary oak. Finishes with spreading, sweet tannins and very good persistence. A plush Gazin with very good chewy depth, but in a softer style and offering a lot of early appeal. (ST)
It's impressive how the new wood, which tasted overpowering in barrel, has now integrated. Yes, it is firm and toasty, but the sweet Merlot shows well, as do the tense fruit tannins. A wine to age. (RV)
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Gazin has a delightful bouquet with small dark cherries, blueberry and iodine aromas, completely different to the 2006 Nénin, much more vigorous and cohesive. This is a bouquet with a sense of purpose. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannin, respectable depth and complexity towards the finish with delicate, slightly leafy, truffle-tinged red fruit. This seems to be at its peak now and comes highly recommended. Tasted January 2016. (NM)
Complex aromas of green coffee bean, tarragon and blackberry, turning to licorice and violet. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and beautiful fruit. Very balanced and refined for the vintage. Exceptional for this estate. A real beauty. (JS)
