Château Gazin Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

$125

Wow! This wine exceeded my enthusiastic barrel tasting notes. A big, back-strapping blockbuster from Gazin, in which the oak seems to be pushed into the background... the wine offers up notes of caramelized black cherry and black currant fruit interwoven with mocha, white chocolate, subtle toast and hints of coffee beans and tobacco leaf. The exceptional aromatics are easily followed up by a full-bodied, powerful, broodingly backward, rich, intense wine with multiple dimensions, layers of fruit, and a sensational finish of close to a minute. This is one of the all-time great efforts from Gazin... Robert Parker

Still a baby from Pomerol, this lovely wine from the amazing 2010 vintage is still very young, but shows some of the potential to come. Deep garnet color, a lovely complex and rich nose, with lairs of black current, soil, chocolate, light licorice, a touch of iron, a hint of red cherry, red current, and mocha. Full body, with firm tannins, lovely acid to support its long expected maturation, takes time to open up, and rewards you by the hour. Nice elegant finish. My score 91, drink to 2025 and most probably longer.

Vanilla, currant, cinnamon, and anise on the nose pushes through to the palate. Good, juicy core with med weight dusty tannins. A little VA on the finish.

Tobacco, leather and lead. Ready to drink (on NYE 2019!) and delicious.

This was sold as an “almost Petrus” - and it was VERY young but had the right structure for an excellent Pomerol! Wonderful tannic structure, and amazing balance. Perhaps this is what a young Petrus tastes like!?!
