2015 Gazin



Neal Martin has just released his 2015 Bordeaux scores and an early eye-catcher is Gazin of Pomerol. Scored at 94-96 points and available in limited quantities at just £241 per 6 in bond, this is such a strong buy that it is already selling out across the Bordeaux wholesale market. Pomerol expert Martin knows the Right-Bank better than most and so for him to pick this out and suggest to his readers: “do not overlook this” marks it out as a must-have from the 2015 campaign. Full details and other critic opinions can be found below.

The 2015 Gazin is dark, fleshy and wonderfully expressive. Mocha, bittersweet chocolate and a host of ripe dark fruit, along with the wine's contours, give the 2015 much of its sumptuous personality. This is a decidedly plush, extracted style, but all the elements are nicely balanced throughout. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Gazin has a perfumed bouquet with layers of black cherry, raspberry coulis and truffle scents, more welcoming and sensual than the wines a decade ago from barrel when they intermittently felt under-ripe. There is none of that here for sure. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit on the entry. There is excellent structure here, a masculine Gazin with plenty of grip, counterbalanced by abundant tertiary, tobacco-tinged black fruit. There is real salinity towards the finish, completing a superb wine by Nicolas de Bailliencourt and his team. Do not overlook this Pomerol. It is one of the subtler expressions of the 2015 vintage and one that I am sure will develop beautifully in cask. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2050

Ripe, rounded and inviting in feel, with a red licorice frame around a core of plum sauce and cherry preserves. A touch of alder peeks out on the finish, as this has yet to digest the oak, but the pieces are in place for a rock-solid Pomerol. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Bright crimson. Appetising and savoury on the nose. Much drier than most Pomerols. Racy and mineral. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2024-2040

Maintaining great consistency these days. Big, bold and succulent with an impressive depth of ripe fruit and tannins. Rich but balanced. A reliable purchase. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2022-2037

I can’t remember tasting a better vintage of Gazin at this age. Exceeding my expectations, this is a lovely, harmonious, well balanced blend. This carries its 14.5% alcohol with ease, thanks to the succulent black fruits balanced by acidity and minerality. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2022-2030
