2009 Château Gazin, Pomerol

Gazin's vineyards are superbly situated, adjacent to Pétrus. Interesting on the nose, with notes of woodsmoke, concentrated black fruit and grilled herbs. Mouthfilling, with almost sugar-coated tannins, intense blueberry fruit and a long, dark chocolate finish. Was excellent last year, but this is bigger-boned and should be better in time.

2009 Château Gazin, Pomerol
Château Gazin

Château Gazin is situated on the northern edge of the appellation, with vineyards on prime gravel and clay soils and sharing a border with Petrus and L’Evangile. Indeed, some parts of the vineyard share the same vein of clay soil for which Petrus is so renowned. Gazin went through decades in the wilderness from its golden age of the 19th century until the late 1980s, but has been firmly improving since, converting to complete hand-harvesting, reduced yields, and introducing a second wine.
