2017 Gazin, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1357366 92-95 points Jeb Dunnuck

 One of the more sexy, opulent wines in the vintage is the 2017 Château Gazin, which comes close to the estate‚Äôs smoking good 2015. Ripe black cherries, currants, spice box and incense notes all give way to a medium to full-bodied, plump, beautifully textured Pomerol that has sweet tannin and a great finish. It should hit the ground running and keep for 15 years or more.  (4/2018)

94 points James Suckling

 Blueberry and plum aromas here with some flowers and hot stones, too. Complex. Medium body. Juicy fruit in the center palate. Soft, refined tannins and fresh acidity. Lovely complexity and focus.  (1/2020)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

 Juicy and fruity, this wine is hiding its richness at this stage. But it will be a concentrated wine boasting great fruitiness. (RV)  (1/2020)

92 points Vinous

 The 2017 Gazin has a detailed and well defined bouquet, scents of blackberry, undergrowth, black truffle and a touch of lavender gently unfold with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins. There is a fine bead of acidity here, classic in style with tertiary, slightly ferrous notes towards the harmonious and persistent finish. Multiple showing evince a Pomerol that is improving day-by-day in bottle, manifesting more sophistication and harmony. (NM)  (2/2020)

89-92 points Wine Spectator

 Focused, with cherry and cassis notes driving through, flanked by singed vanilla accents and a light briar edge. Just a touch toothy through the finish, but should fill out well enough. (JM, Web Only-2018)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Gazin is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and scented of warm red plums and black forest cake with touches of forest floor and crushed rocks. Medium-bodied, soft, rounded and mouth-filling, it gives good expression and depth. (LPB) 89-91+  (4/2018)

Jancis Robinson

 Deep crimson. A little meaty on the nose, but with a definite graphite note and sweet black plum. Firm and dry but the fruit is there for a balanced whole. Persistent, too. (JH) 16+/20  (4/2018)
