The 2006 Chateux Gazin reveals intense burgundy colour as well as ripe fruit scents: blackberry and cherry. The swirl exudes lightly toasted hints from delicate ageing (no excess). This Pomerol offers distinctive violet aromas enhanced with caramel and dairy (fermented). Perfectly integrated wood -blended empyreumatic hints- reflect the meticulous maturation. This offering carries a lively attack as well as silky and smooth tannins: no tartness or bitterness. This classic vintage opens up quite fast even though it can keep for 10-15 years.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Gazin has a delightful bouquet with small dark cherries, blueberry and iodine aromas, completely different to the 2006 Nénin, much more vigorous and cohesive. This is a bouquet with a sense of purpose. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannin, respectable depth and complexity towards the finish with delicate, slightly leafy, truffle-tinged red fruit. This seems to be at its peak now and comes highly recommended. Tasted January 2016.
