A big powerful masculine Pomerol with a style not dissimilar from Le Gay the dense purple-colored 2009 Gazin exhibits black currant black cherry liqueur coffee roasted herb an exotic Asian spice component vanillin creme caramel and toasty oak in its aromatics and flavors. From a vineyard near Petrus Le Gay and La Fleur Petrus it is full-bodied with licorice earth truffle and creme de cassis in the mouth. Give this powerful backward 2009 an additional 6-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades.

This has it all in place-dark smoldering tobacco and cocoa notes rich plum sauce braised fig and steeped black currant fruit joined by lengthy mouthcoating tar-tinged grip. Still youthfully raw though so cellar for maximum effect. Best from 2014 through 2028. -JM

A smoky wine its fruit submerged in the wood character. It does have weight along with powerful tight tannins. It's a wine that will need many years. R.V.

The nose is creamy with notes of milk chocolate baking spices vanilla and butterscotch. The sweet fruit core of blackberry syrup and raspberry compote is the anchor on the palate. It is voluptuous seductive and integrates seamlessly with the spice chocolate and even animal notes. One of the more dense multifaceted examples of merlot in the 2009 vintage the partially clay soils next door to Petrus add a hefty balance to the sweet lifted nature of the grape. Open and decant now and it will be interesting to watch this evolve over the next decade.
