Something about Gazin
The vineyards of Chateau Gazin cover an area of 26 ha in a single tract located on the upper terrace of the terroir of Pomerol. Chateau Gazin originated as an 18th century hamlet built by the Knights of Saint-Jean for pilgrims on traveling to Santiago de Compostela. The wines of the estate are characteristically feminine and charming, due to the dominance of Merlot. Their lavish generosity offers a wide range red and black fruit aromas that harmonise with its intense purple or garnet colour, delivering dozens of nuanced aromas and a spicy nose.

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Gazin is scented of baked plums, Christmas cake, mincemeat and plum preserves with hints of chocolate box, coffee, tapenade and smoked meats. Medium to full-bodied with mouth-filling baked berries and savory layers, it has firm, chewy tannins and a long finish. 2020 - 2040
The 2015 Gazin has a fragrant bouquet of blackberry, briary and truffle; a whiff of bonfire smoke emerges with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, quite edgy and tensile with a fresh, graphite and tobacco-laced finish that is classic in style. Superb, if missing the same horsepower of 12 months ago. This might well be closing down. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.
The 2015 Gazin is dark, fleshy and wonderfully expressive. Mocha, bittersweet chocolate and a host of ripe dark fruit, along with the wine's contours, give the 2015 much of its sumptuous personality. This is a decidedly plush, extracted style, but all the elements are nicely balanced throughout.
Tasted blind. Bright, dark crimson. Rich and spicy. Very complete and flattering with ripeness and a grace note of freshness. Rather drying finish but very satisfying. Dense but not heavy. Drink 2024-2040
