2018 Gazin, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1407952 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The deep purple, inky-hued 2018 Château Gazin comes from the Pomerol plateau and is 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. A brilliant nose of blueberries, candied cherries, wildflowers, tobacco, chocolate, and spice gives way to a stunning Pomerol with full-bodied richness, a layered, seamless texture, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. This plush, sexy, opulent Pomerol does everything right. It already offers pleasure yet will ideally be given 4-6 years of bottle age and will have two decades or so over overall longevity. Inner quote mark (3/2021)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Rich aromas of blueberries, ripe black cherries, chocolate and sandalwood. It’s full-bodied with firm, well integrated and rounded tannins. Solid depth of fruit here. Creamy and polished. Inner quote mark (3/2021)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark For its weight, this wine is also elegant. Rich, lush Merlot fruit flavors have a sense of restraint, selfcontained and already delicious. The ripe berry flavors promise a wine that will have opulent fruit as well as structure. Drink from 2026. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is a good-quality, serious wine. It has some firm tannins and a ton of fruit, and underneath it all the luxurious feel of a quality Pomerol. 2018 marks 100 years under the de Bailliencourt family. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Gazin has a lively, generous bouquet of vivacious wild strawberry, boysenberry and hints of tobacco. The aromatics are well delineated and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, offering seductive black fruit mixed with black pepper, truffle and clove. There is so much finesse toward the finish that it is approachable now, yet it certainly has the substance to suggest long-term aging. Not to be underestimated, this is another wonderful Gazin. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Gazin (a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc) leaps from the glass with vibrant notes of warm plums, black raspberries and kirsch, plus suggestions of wild mushrooms, fragrant earth, Sichuan pepper and tree bark. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers impressive energy with approachable, rounded tannins and a lively backbone framing the crunchy red and black fruits, finishing long and earthy. (LPB) 93+ Inner quote mark (3/2021)
