The 2014 Chateau Gazin displays a dark red colour with blue highlights. This Pomerol nose offers a scrumptious aromatic palette of red berries, mainly dominated by raspberry, followed by a balsamic note from the ageing process. The palate is fleshy on tannins with a delicate, quite fine grain. The fruit is also present on the palate and delightfully closes this wine. It enjoyed a mild weather during the last days of fall, with carefully treated Merlots and a good ripeness.
The 2014 Gazin was stubborn and broody when tasted in bottle, but give it a few swirls and there comes forth gravel and black truffle scents alongside sultry black fruit. These aromatics are so engaging and involving, drawing you in towards it charms. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and taut with great precision and sappiness towards the focused, almost symmetrical, black truffle-laced finish. This continues Gazin's fine run of form, a great Pomerol from an estate predisposed these days to create sophisticated, classic wines.
