2016 is in the same style as 2015, but more powerful and fleshy, and already very silky in the mouth thanks to the maturity of its tannins. The wine offers a nice freshness, a round and ample attack with a lot of length. The nose always in this early youth of the wine is fruit (notes of red and black fruits: cherry cherry and blackcurrant). Like all pomerols, this wine will evolve towards notes of undergrowth, leather, truffle after a few years of aging in your cellar, which will bring all its complexity and finesse. To wait preferably 8/10 years But consumable today after a little rest in your storeroom thanks to the finesse of its merlots and the freshness of its cabernets.

Wine AdvocateMedium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Gazin features a beautifully perfumed nose of violets, Ceylon tea, cigar box, sandalwood and fallen leaves over a core of plum preserves, kirsch and blackberry preserves plus a waft of aniseed. Medium-bodied and elegant, with compelling restraint, it has a seductively plush texture, finishing with bags of poise, perfume and persistence.

Wine SpectatorRipe and engaging, with a pretty display of cherry, raspberry and blueberry fruit flavors that stay fresh, carried by silky structure through the inviting finish. Not super-dense, but really lovely fruit. (Barrel Tasting)
