Tasting Note:

We don’t mind admitting it, we’re big fans of Gazin. This elegant Château situated on the edge of the Pomerol plateau between Petrus and the Lalande de Pomerol border is on a fine run. They produce honest, characterful wines full of charm and grace. The 2020 is slightly more heady and decadent than normal, but still retains a nice sense of classicism. Bursting with blackberries, eucalyptus and sweet exotic fruits and spices; this is a lifted style, bright and high-toned, generous and rather classy, supported by a framework of tannins that makes this feel complete and gives it real presence as well as persistence on the mouth-watering finish.

"This is really fantastic with so much intensity and focus. Firm, linear tannins frame the wine beautifully. Polished and fine. It’s full-bodied, yet tight and posed. Complex flavors of blackberry, black olive, mushroom and bark. Persistent finish. Best of the trilogy? 96-97/100" - James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

"I love this, extremely classic Gazin, which has depth and pep, and a jaunty feel to the black fruits. The freshness keeps the core of this wine firm from beginning to end, as do the chewy tannins. This is not an exuberant vintage but at this particular estate it suits the personality because it is always fairly old school and classic. For the first time no Cabernet Franc in the blend, just Cabernet Sauvignon. A yield of 35hl/ha. No added sulphur during fermentation. Tasted twice, there are plenty of tannins here but it is highly successful. Drinking Window 2029- 2043" 94/100 - Jane Anson, Decanter.com
