  • Robert Parker, February 2009, Score: 92

    This is a very strong effort from this estate, which sits just adjacent to Petrus. In fact, they sold part of their vineyard to Petrus in the early 1970s. This is a full-bodied, powerful 2006 with the oak more restrained than it normally is in a young Gazin. Copious quantities of sweet plum, fig, and black cherry fruit are intermixed with cedar and dried herbs in a medium to full-bodied, rich, long, impressively endowed style. This is an outstanding wine, with enough stuffing, structure, and density to age beautifully over a 20- to 25-year period.

  • Robert Parker, April 2007, Score: 90-92

    Often excessively woody in its youth, Gazin appears to have toned down the wood component, resulting in a more savory and balanced wine. The finest effort produced since 2001, the 2006 is a supple, concentrated, rich Pomerol offering up aromas of cedar, plums, black cherries, and subtle new oak. This opulent, dense, structured, big wine is another outstanding success from an appellation that excelled in 2006. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.

  • Jancis Robinson, May 2007, Score: 17

    Dark and very healthy glowing crimson. Meaty, sumptuous nose. Lovely texture very sophisticated. Smoothly polished fruit then pretty dry tannins but not much hint of greenness. Pretty well done. It's that finishing school polish More impressive than many recent vintages of Gazin.

Producer

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.

Region

Pomerol

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
