Wow! This wine exceeded my enthusiastic barrel tasting notes. A big, back-strapping blockbuster from Gazin, in which the oak seems to be pushed into the background (thankfully), the wine offers up notes of caramelized black cherry and black currant fruit interwoven with mocha, white chocolate, subtle toast and hints of coffee beans and tobacco leaf. The exceptional aromatics are easily followed up by a full-bodied, powerful, broodingly backward, rich, intense wine with multiple dimensions, layers of fruit, and a sensational finish of close to a minute. This is one of the all-time great efforts from Gazin. It should be forgotten for 6-10 years and drunk over the following 30 to 40. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

Tasted at the Syndicat de Pomerol. Gazin has been on form in recent vintages. The 2010 has a very pure bouquet with superb lift and purity: black cherries and raspberry, crushed stone underneath. The palate is full-bodied with grippy tannins, very good acidity, compact and masculine, huge weight on the finish, great length and ambition. Superb. Tasted April 2011.

This sports some power, with dark fig, plum and blackberry fruit, but still stays silky, with perfumy black tea gliding in on the finish. A lacing of iron shows some strength as well. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Very dark and lustrous with some ruby at the rim. High toned and aromatic. Very comfortable and unforced. Highly successful with real vivacity. Dry finish. Was this on some clay? Well done! Quite juicy. jancisrobinson.com

Rich and savoury. Plenty of fruit on the palate. Powerful but refined structure. Persistent. Needs time but won't disappoint. Drink 2018-2035. James Lawther, decanter.com

The 2010 Gazin is very rich, very ripe with plenty of velvety smooth flavours. It is a sleek wine that has little room for nuances. There is good concentration to enable the wine to age well for at least a decade or two. asianpalate.com

Very rich and firmly structured and with (almost) bitter concentration in the middle. The underlying fruit is very pretty though and this should age very well.
