1989 Gazin

Average critic rating : 84.5 points



Both the 1989 and 1990 wines have consistently scored slightly higher than indicated in my original reviews. I have noted before that after years of mediocrity, Gazin began to move in a positive direction beginning with the 1988 vintage. Even wines from more difficult years, 1992, 1993, and 1994, have been well-made. The lovely, forward 1989 possesses a dark ruby color with no amber at the edge. The big, sweet nose of cherry fruit, cedar, spice, herbs, and caramel is followed by a supple wine with excellent concentration, low acidity, and sweet tannin in the round, generous finish. The wine is close to full maturity, yet promises to drink well for another decade. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 109.



Shows impressive concentration of ripe fruit, with plenty of berry and chocolate character, and it's full-bodied, but the palate turns slightly papery and dry on the finish. This wine is going through a strange period. Tasted three times, with consistent notes.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal. Drink now. -James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1999
