95-96 points James Suckling

"A very juicy and nicely chewy young red with black berry, chocolate and cedar aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied with integrated tannins and a fresh and persistent finish." (4/2023)

94 points Decanter

"Supple and energetic, this has a lovely dynamism and purity straight away, clean and clear, tangy but tannic so you get brightness and power. It's on the more tannic side right now, filling and upfront, but they have a nice texture and weight and the fruit intensity really carries the liveliness all the way through - picked just ripe, or just before, I think. Nicely accessible and a softer more approachable style from Gazin. A little atypical and the better for it. A yield of 26hl/ha. (GH)" (4/2023)

94 points Jane Anson

"A serious Pomerol even in the lightest of vintages, so it really can relax into its natural character in 2022. Strict tannins, but that is often the case for this wine, relaxing into liqourice, cocoa bean, espresso, rosemary, underbrush, slightly drying on the finish, but this has a ton of impact, it has all the elements for ageing, an impressive wine." (4/2023)

92-94 points Jeb Dunnuck

"Lots of spiced black cherries, currants, chocolate, and spicy notes emerge from the 2022 Château Gazin, a richer, medium to full-bodied Pomerol with plenty of mid-palate depth, building tannins, and outstanding length. The tannins will need to be watched here, but this is clearly an outstanding wine in the making."(5/2023)

92-94 points Wine Advocate

"Unwinding in the glass with aromas of dark berries, licorice, cherries and spices, the 2022 Gazin is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with excellent depth at the core, sweet tannins and a long, expansive finish. Despite the drought, the vineyards performed better in 2022 than in 2020 at this address, and the result is one of the better vintages for Gazin in recent years. (WK) 92-94+" (4/2023)

91-93 points Vinous

"The 2022 Gazin has a ripe and generous bouquet with a mixture of red and black fruit, touches of star anis and light floral scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and good depth. It's a muscular Gazin with grippy, tobacco-infused black fruit toward the finish. This is a solid and dense Pomerol that manages to retain freshness and delineation. It will certainly require time, but I'm hoping it develops a bit more pizzazz by the time of bottling. Never underestimate Gazin - it may well happen. (NM)" (4/2023)
