Gazin Pomerol 2010
"Another remarkable effort from Gazin, the big, powerful, dense 2010 boasts an opaque purple color along with loads of black currant and kirsch-like fruit intermixed with licorice, caramel, mocha and toasty oak. This seriously endowed, broodingly backward cuvee requires 6-8 years of cellaring and should keep for three decades or more."*-Robert Parker Wine Advocate (93-95 points)**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2013*
Editorial Reviews for Gazin Pomerol
Subtle on the nose with aromas of dried flowers, fresh fruit,leather, oak, and dried herb seeds come together not he rather classic nose. Lighter styled in the mouth and both fresh and elegant with nice purity to the fruit which has a nice mineral overlay on the palate. The tannins really emerge on the backend, this is not a big wine but a compact and slightly dense wine, a bit extracted and tough with tannins that are a bit raw and clip the finish. This should improve but the tannins might remain a bit angular. 88pts

Dense, with a dark, smoldering feel as charcoal and coffee weave around a core of mulled fig, blackberry and boysenberry fruit. The long, muscular finish features singed iron and black tea notes for added range. Needs a little time, but should unfurl nicely. Best from 2015 through 2030.
Rich fruit currants and berries, intensely juicy, packed with dark very ripe fruit. A powerhouse of berries.
Wow! This wine exceeded my enthusiastic barrel tasting notes. A big, back-strapping blockbuster from Gazin, in which the oak seems to be pushed into the background (thankfully), the wine offers up notes of caramelized black cherry and black currant fruit interwoven with mocha, white chocolate, subtle toast and hints of coffee beans and tobacco leaf. The exceptional aromatics are easily followed up by a full-bodied, powerful, broodingly backward, rich, intense wine with multiple dimensions, layers of fruit, and a sensational finish of close to a minute. This is one of the all-time great efforts from Gazin. It should be forgotten for 6–10 years and drunk over the following 30 to 40.
