    Robert Parker, April 1996,
    Score: 90-92

    The 1995 reveals a more saturated dark purple color than brilliant 1994, with an opaque black middle. The tannin is slightly higher and the acidity slightly lower. The wine possesses a sweet, jammy nose that demonstrates just how ripe the grapes were in this vintage. Thick, rich, and full-bodied, with an opulent texture, and gobs of smoky, rich fruit, glycerin, and extract, this is another impressively-endowed, pure, rich, decadently-styled Pomerol for drinking 2-3 years after bottling, and over the following 15-20 years.This property is one of the up and coming stars of Pomerol, as anyone who has tasted the wines made this decade can attest. Gazin's vineyard is well situated behind Petrus, not far from the other plateau vineyards of Lafleur, Certan de May, Vieux-Chateau-Certan, L'Evangile, and La Conseillante. Gazin is making brilliant wines - so readers take note!All of the wines in this segment were tasted between March 19 and March 28 in Bordeaux. Most of the important wines from both the 1994 and 1995 vintages were tasted three separate times during my ten-day stay in Bordeaux. Drink: 1998-2019.

    As I have indicated in previous Bordeaux reports, this estate is one of the up and coming stars of Pomerol. The well-situated vineyard adjacent to Petrus is capable of producing splendid wines, and, in fact, has done so since the 1990 vintage. Moreover, Gazin has been especially consistent in Bordeaux's more difficult years (i.e., 1992 and 1993). The 1995 may turn out to be the finest Gazin yet produced. It looks to be superior to the gorgeous 1990. The wine boasts an opaque purple color, some gorgeously rich, smoky aromas offering cassis, chocolate-tinged fruit, an opulent texture, a fabulously sweet, expansive richness as it hits the palate, low acidity, and moderately high, ripe tannin in the long, medium to full-bodied finish. This looks to be an exquisite, pure, impressively constituted Pomerol. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020.

    This deep ruby/purple-colored wine has shut down following bottling, and while it hints at some of its exotic grilled herb and meat-like character, the reluctant nose reveals primarily new oak, smoke, spice, and background jammy fruit. On the palate, the wine is deep, medium to full-bodied, refined, and except for some noticeably hard tannin in the finish, relatively seamless. This expansively-flavored wine offers plenty of spice, new oak, fruit, and depth. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2018. This chateau has made an impressive rebound, which is good news as it is one of Pomerol's largest estates, with the potential to produce 10,000 cases, although in most recent vintages nearly 40% of the harvest has been deemed insufficient to be bottled under the Gazin label.

Château Gazin

If one were to choose one château in all of Bordeaux to live in, this might well be the one. Beautifully serene with soft hues and stone walls, it is inviting and warm. Unfortunately, we were only invited to taste, so our residential fantasies soon had to fade into the morning mist.
