Chateau Gazin Pomerol Rouge 2012

This vintage delights with its rich bouquet of dark cherries, hints of truffle, and silky tannins. It's a wine that embodies the finesse and character of Pomerol, offering a memorable experience for discerning palates.

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Gazin has a complex, quite mercurial bouquet that seems quite confit in style at the moment. After five minutes it offers raspberry coulis, wild strawberry, marmalade and minerals. You could nose this all day! The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, beautifully balanced with a harmony all its own. It glides across the mouth, so much so that it almost belies the structure underneath. This is seriously good—a top-drawer Pomerol with long-term ambitions. It may warrant an even higher score in the future. This is one to watch. Tasted January 2016. - Reviewed by: Neal Martin
