Today sees the release of Ch Gazin, the most important release so far, from arguably 2015s most successful appellation, Pomerol.
Situated in between Petrus and Evangile, on the Pomerol plateau (planted on clay and limestone which perform particularly well in hot vintages), this is often excellent value compared to some of their illustrious neighbours and at £480.00/cs IB the 2015 is no exception.

For Gazin purists, this is possibly somewhat modern in style, but my, what a lovely wine it is. This is fleshy, rich, but also charming and harmonious. Layers and layers of sweet dark fruit flavours, with hints of molasses and cinnamon spice. Some rich tannins on the finish and very long at the end.

Maintaining great consistency these days. Big, bold and succulent with an impressive depth of ripe fruit and tannins. Rich but balanced. A reliable purchase.
92 points. Decanter
Bright crimson. Appetising and savoury on the nose. Much drier than most Pomerols. Racy and mineral.
