Chateau du Gazin Canon Fronsac 2009
Château GAZIN wines are a very typical product of the Pomerol terroir. Their lavish richness offers a wide aromatic range of black and red fruits which harmonises with their intense purple or garnet colour. They also frequently offer hints of mint, plum, chocolate, coffee or liquorice, a bouquet of almond, toast, tobacco and vanilla. Maturity gives them a nose of spices, truffles, undergrowth and gamey scents : fur, leather... Their taste is characterised by their silky tannins, their balance and concentration, enhanced by a delicate oaky note.
External Reviews for Chateau du Gazin Canon Fronsac
A very sturdy wine with nuances of blackberries and bramble flavors. Mouth entry shows off more fruit accompanied by a little dust and vanilla. This blend of Merlot and Cabernet is a must-try! It goes beautifully with lamb pilaf, shepherd’s pie, or even a bleu cheese burger!
Hailing from the lesser known appellation of Fronsac, Chacirc;teau du Gazin proves to be every bit as potent as its more famous neighbors from Pomerol and Saint-Eacute;milion. It has deep fruit flavors, toasted mocha and a sensuous, supple texture that envelops the entire tongue. An amazing value, this wine would pair beautifully with leg of lamb, roast beef or a succulent, medium-rare steak.
Smaller than Fronsac, the Canon-Fronsac appellation occupies higher and steeper terrain. The resulting wine is stronger and more substantial. This wine has a dark ruby color, with purplish hints that turn garnet with age. A concentrated nose has notes of raspberry, strawberry and red currants that develop with time into stewed prunes, leather and mocha.
Full-bodied with notes of plum, cherry and anise, this Bordeaux has the tannin and flavor to stand up to red meat, game or a variety of cheeses.
