Winemaker's Notes

"A sleeper of the vintage, and possibly the finest Gazin I have ever tasted, the 2001 reveals the best integratino of oak at this property in many years. An opaque plum/purple color is accompanied by a glorious bouquet of burning embers, roasted meats, espresso, and sweet plum and blackberry fruit... this full-bodied, impressive effort represents a breakthrough for Gazin."
-Wine Advocate

Château Gazin wines are a very typical product of the gravelly-clay soil of the Pomerol high terraces.

From an early age their lavish richness offers a wide aromatic range of black and red fruits (cherries, morello cherries, red currants, raspberries, blackberries, black currants) which harmonizes with their intense purple or garnet color.

They also frequently offer hints of mint, plum, chocolate, coffee or liquorice, and a bouquet of almond, toast, tobacco and vanilla. Maturity gives them a nose of spices, truffles, undergrowth and gamey scents : fur, leather, etc. Their taste is characterized by their silky tannins, their balance and concentration, enhanced by a delicate oaky note.
