Gazin 2021

Gazin

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 93.0

Built upon the ruins of the 12th century Hôpital de Pomeyrols, Château Gazin is steeped in history, which is imbued into this classic Pomerol wine. A 26-hectare winery, its vineyards contain Merlot (c.80%), Cabernet Franc (c.15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (c.5%). At Gazin they carry the harvest out by hand, before maturing the wine in 50% new oak barrels for eighteen months, and it is the contact between the fine lees and the oak tannins that see the structural complexity of this wine take form. Neighbouring the estates of L’Evangile and Pétrus may seem like stiff competition, but in turn, Gazin benefits from the exceptional Pomerol terroir, which comprises of a clay-gravel sub-soil. The result? A nose teeming with potent aromas, whose full-bodied palate is crammed with juicy red and black fruit flavours.

Georgina Hindle

Dark chocolate, perfume and black fruits on the nose - fragrant rose and iris petals. Succulent yet quite densely mouthfilling straight away, the chalky salinity and bitter chocolate edged tannins in full force gripping the tongue and cheeks with a blueberry, raspberry and black cherry fruit pulp. It certainly has the density that others in the vintage dont have but its missing the elongation and some of the refinement that others show. You do get fully ripe fruit here though, the acidity underneath and a plushness that should see this through ageing nicely.

A little dull aromatically but supple fruit on the palate as well as assertive tannins. Dry and chewy on the finish. Is there enough fruit to cope with the tannins? (JL)
