2018 Gazin, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1407952 94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A rock star in the making, the 2018 Château Gazin is made from 93 %Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. Rich, powerful, and medium to full-bodied, it has s serious feel in its structure and tannin as well as awesome notes of candied cherries, cassis, chocolate, and crushed rocks. With beautiful purity, it builds beautifully on the palate and has both richness and elegance. It’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and cruise for 20+ years. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Smooth and juicy, this is ripe in a blackberry flavor. The wine's rich fruits are shot through with the fresh acidity that marks so many Merlots from Pomerol in this vintage. The wine is sure to age well. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

94-95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is very tight and polished with a compact and beautiful palate of blackberries, currants and black olives. Full-bodied yet structurally solid with a very long finish. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Gazin is very seductive on the nose with small dark cherries, wild strawberry, truffle and tobacco notes unfurling in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, good backbone and precise black fruit laced with white pepper and bay leaf. This is quintessential Gazin with wonderful salinity on the finish. A classy offering from Nicolas Baillencourt that will age with class. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Gazin (composed of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc) has quite an earthy/broody nose to begin, with subtle black soil, tar and chargrill notes giving way to a core of prunes, baked blueberries and sautéed herbs. Full, muscular and chewy in the mouth, it has loads of earthy layers and a dried herbs lift on the finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

K&L Notes

91-94 points Antonio Galloni for Vinous: "The 2018 Gazin was impressive all three times I tasted it. Powerful and vibrant, with terrific persistence, the 2018 has more than enough supporting structure to balance the natural richness of the year. Grilled herbs, scorched earth, iron, licorice, mint and dried flowers give the red/purplish toned fruit a decidedly savory dimension that is hugely attractive. Some samples showed quite a bit of tannin, but the wine has more than enough breadth to develop beautifully during élevage and beyond. Tasted three times." (04/2019)
