Bordeaux Futures 2020 estimated arrival Spring 2023
96-97 points James Suckling
"This is really fantastic with so much intensity and focus. Firm, linear tannins frame the wine beautifully. Polished and fine. It's full-bodied, yet tight and posed. Complex flavors of blackberry, black olive, mushroom, and bark. Persistent finish. Best of the triology" (5/2021)
"A quintessential Pomerol with its beautiful red and blue fruits as well as flora, earth, and sappy herb aromas and flavors, the 2020 Château Gazin is medium to full-bodied and has a wonderful purity, ultra-fine tannins, and no hard edges. It shines for its purity and elegance and is just a classy, thrilling wine." (5/2021)
93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Deep purple-black colored, the 2020 Gazin rolls effortlessly out of the glass with upfront scents of baked black plums, stewed black cherries and mulberries, plus hints of spice cake, chocolate box, and cracked black pepper. The medium to full-bodied palate has a solid backbone of firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness supporting the muscular black fruits, finishing savory. (LPB)" (5/2021)
94 Neal Martin for Vinous
"The 2020 Gazin, which contains no Cabernet Franc this year, has a wonderful bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, crushed stone and pressed iris petal scents, very focused and precise, that really whisks you down to Pomerol. The medium-bodied palate displays fine-grained tannins and a silver bead of acidity. Very said with a little more dryness on the finish than its peers, which gets the saliva flowing. Classic Pomerol through and through." (5/2021)
