This is a gorgeous wine with superb density and balance for the vintage. Full body, polished, fine tannins and a long, long finish. There’s so much complexity and beauty to this with blueberry, wet earth and spice... This is a gorgeous wine with superb density and balance for the vintage. Full body, polished, fine tannins and a long, long finish. There’s so much complexity and beauty to this with blueberry, wet earth and spice character. Some sliced Chinese mushrooms as well. One of the best wines I have had from here in a long time. Better in 2020.

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. - Neal Martin

(NM91-93 points) Nicolas de Bailliencourt told me that the Cabernet Franc was affected by rot this year, so the Grand Vin is 100% Merlot picked between 20th September and 4th October. It has plenty of ripe raspberry and fresh strawberry fruit on the nose with hints of dark plum underneath – the oak neatly integrated. The palate is well balanced with firm, grainy tannins. There is good structure here, fine focus, with a lovely touch of white pepper on the expressive finish. Good potential.

Among the richer, riper and most generous of the 2012 Pomerols under review, this 100% Merlot bottling from Château Gazin borders on opulence without quite overplaying its hand. It smacks strongly of currants and black cherries with a touch of plums to the side, and it is sure to please those who like an extra dollop of extracted fruit in their clarets. It is solidly framed with integral acidity and fine, firming tannins right where they should be, and its slight finishing toughness is entirely appropriate for its age. It is a Pomerol meant for the cellar and it should be set aside for at least six to eight years.

Fleshy, with dark plum sauce and blackberry reduction flavors wrapped in a solid coating of toasty vanilla and carrying through a cocoa-edged finish.

Fleshy, with dark plum sauce and blackberry reduction flavors wrapped in a solid coating of toasty vanilla and carrying through a cocoa-edged finish. Still has some toast to absorb, but this features a pleasant bolt of graphite and good lingering fruit and anise notes. Best from 2017 through 2023.
