This property is wonderfully situated, right next door to Petrus on the Pomerol plateau.
The 2023 Gazin is made from 89% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc.

One of those benchmark estates that rise above the individual character of the year, imposing their own personality that remains true to itself. Good texture here, enjoyable depth and balance, peony floral character, cocoa bean and slate, with tannins that give sinew and tension to the palate. Good stuff, will age.

The 2023 Gazin has a typical bouquet for this Pomerol estate - always understated, and one where you have to spend time coaxing aromas. Eventually, it offers predominantly black fruit laced with black truffles and light earthy scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. It veers more toward red fruit laced with white pepper on the cohesive and classically styled finish. This is maybe not a long-term Gazin, but it has an air of sophistication.
91-93 Neal Martin.

Very classy, with a crushed-stone and terra-cotta highlight to the blackberry, chocolate and hazelnut character. It's medium-bodied with a personality that grows on the finish and delivers intensity and length at the end. Very long. Very structured. We will see which is better, 2022 or 2023.
95-96 James Suckling.

The 2023 Gazin has a deep garnet-purple colour. It is a touch subdued to begin, needing a little patience to discover subtle notes of redcurrant jelly, fresh plums, and cedar, leading to hints of pencil lead and bay leaves. The medium-bodied palate has fine-grained tannins and bright acidity supporting the delicate red and black fruit flavours, finishing with a savoury lift. I like this quiet intensity!
