The bordeaux appearance is quite complete and features black reflections. Fresh aroma, full of red and blackberry: raspberry, cherry, and currant, finished with a subtle woody note (50% new barrels). To the taste, the wine is ample, elegant, smooth, lingering, and refined, leaving a fresh and light after-effect, with a lingering finish, lacking in high acidity, but offering supple tannins because of how well they are aged. It will be better after aging 5 or 6 years (2018) during which time it will develop a complement of classic Pomerol notes: humus, truffle, leather...It should not be stored longer than 15/18 years, even in good storage conditions.

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Gazin has a complex, quite mercurial bouquet that seems quite confit in style at the moment. After five minutes it offers raspberry coulis, wild strawberry, marmalade and minerals. You could nose this all day! The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, beautifully balanced with a harmony all its own. It glides across the mouth, so much so that it almost belies the structure underneath. This is seriously good-a top-drawer Pomerol with long-term ambitions. It may warrant an even higher score in the future. This is one to watch. Tasted January 2016.

Fleshy, with dark plum sauce and blackberry reduction flavors wrapped in a solid coating of toasty vanilla and carrying through a cocoa-edged finish. Still has some toast to absorb, but this features a pleasant bolt of graphite and good lingering fruit and anise notes. Best from 2017 through 2023. 5,165 cases made.

Deep purple-ruby. Refined but currently subdued aromas of dark fruits and minerals. Linear and clean in the mouth, with crisp dark plum and fresh blackcurrant flavors. Finishes long but slightly dry, with a pretty saline tang.
