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.
Anticipated maturity: 2030-2060
