Gazin has been one of the most impressive Pomerols over the last decade. That's good news for consumers since it is a large estate, with the potential to produce 10,000 cases. The 1996 is an atypically tannic, serious Gazin with a dense rubypurple color, and lavish quantities of toasty new oak in the nose intermixed with licorice, black cherries, and mochacoffee notes. The wine displays excellent concentration, but is backward, with medium to full body, and moderately high tannin. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring as it will be potentially long-lived. It is unquestionably an impressive effort for a 1996 Pomerol.

Château informations
Gazin
The wines of Château GAZIN are very typical of the terroir in Pomerol. Their lavish generosity offers a wide range of aromas of red fruit and black that blends with their intense color, purple or garnet. The wines of Chateau GAZIN also issue, in most cases, shades of plum, chocolate, coffee and licorice aromas of almond, toast, tobacco and vanilla, fresh mint. The maturity gives them a nose of spices, perfumes of truffles, underbrush notes and animals as game, fur, leather .... In the mouth, they are characterized by their refined tannins, balance and concentration brightened by a delicate woodland. . Feminine, charming, because of the dominance of Merlot, the wines are tasted pleasantly GAZIN Castle, after several years of aging, but they deserve most often wait fifteen, twenty or more years. .
