Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

92-93 JS / 91-93+ WA / 89-92 JD / 91 JA / 90 DE

Firm, grainy tannins accompany the core of black fruit and bark. Medium-bodied. Stone character. Mineral, with tangy acidity. - James Suckling

The 2021 Gazin is a fine effort, unfurling in the glass with aromas of sweet red berries, cherries, plums, incense and raw cocoa. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's rather rich and elegantly muscular in the context of the vintage, with a deep core of fruit, powdery tannins and bright acids. Mildew pressure combined with wet conditions that made it impossible to enter the vineyard with tractors delivered low yields of only 18 hectoliters per hectare, and the grand vin is entirely Merlot this year. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

The 2021 Château Gazin is another solid Pomerol and, I suspect, will end up being an outstanding wine. Giving up lots of red and black fruits, leather, and some earthy, herbal notes, it's medium-bodied, has a supple, rounded texture, and a good finish. It's going to keep for 20 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Plenty of fruits here, although a little sombre, majoring on redcurrant, blackcurrant, hawthorn, rose stem and touches of white truffle to give a gourmet kiss on the finish. Always a serious, structured Pomerol, and it makes it extremely severe in a vintage like 2021. - Jane Anson

Dark chocolate, perfume and black fruits on the nose - fragrant rose and iris petals. Succulent yet quite densely mouthfilling straight away, the chalky salinity and bitter chocolate edged tannins in full force gripping the tongue and cheeks with a blueberry, raspberry and black cherry fruit pulp. It certainly has the density that others in the vintage don't have but it's missing the elongation and some of the refinement that others show. You do get fully ripe fruit here though, the acidity underneath and a plushness that should see this through ageing nicely. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter
