2001 Gazin

Average critic rating : 91.5 points



A sleeper of the vintage, and possibly the finest Gazin I have ever tasted, the 2001 reveals the best integration of oak at this property in many years. An opaque plum/purple color is accompanied by a glorious bouquet of burning embers, roasted meats, espresso, and sweet plum and blackberry fruit. Richer and deeper than it appeared from barrel, with a tremendous finish, this full-bodied, impressive effort represents a breakthrough for Gazin. There are 6,000 cases of this 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc blend. One of the more backward wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020+. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 153.



This wine starts off herbal, with aromas of green tobacco, green olives and blackberries. With some air, the green character turns to coffee and blackberry. It delivers a full body with velvety tannins. Some might find it slightly overextracted but it's impressive. Best after 2006. 5,330 cases made. -James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2004
