Wine Description

Sweet, dense black cherry and blackberry flavors punctuated by smoky mushroom, liquorice and new oak notes carry into this wine's layered, concentrated palate, which is set in a steely yet ripe tannic structure.

Tasting Note

RP96 Drink 2018-2048 A big, powerful, masculine Pomerol with a style not dissimilar from Le Gay, the dense purple-colored 2009 Gazin exhibits black currant, black cherry liqueur, coffee, roasted herb, an exotic Asian spice component, vanillin, creme caramel and toasty oak in its aromatics and flavors. From a vineyard near Petrus, Le Gay and La Fleur Petrus, it is full-bodied with licorice, earth, truffle and creme de cassis in the mouth. Give this powerful, backward 2009 an additional 6-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades.
