WEINWISSER: "93 % Merlot, 3.5 % Cabernet Franc, 3.5 % Cabernet Sauvignon. Dicht verwobenes Bouquet, zarte Anklänge an Wildkirsche, erkalteter Waldfrüchtetee, getrocknete Rosenblätter und Veilchenduft. Am tiefgründigen, maskulinen Gaumen mit seidiger Textur, feinsandigem Extrakt, nerviger Rasse, tiefschürfender Terroirwürze und muskulösem Körper. Im konzentrierten, langanhaltenden Finale eine volle Ladung dunkler Graphit, Wacholder und mehlige Adstringenz. Kann noch zulegen dank gewaltigem Lagerpotenzial. 2030 – 2060."
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."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Finesse in style, at its core, the wine is all about its spice, milk-chocolate, plum, cherry, espresso and wet earth character. Long, silky, fresh, refined, and plummy, the mid-palate, and finish remain focused on its layers of silky fruits from start to finish. The wine blends 93% Merlot, 3.5% Cabernet Franc and 3.5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink from 2025-2045."
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. Tasted twice."
FALSTAFF: "Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Reife rote Herzkirschen, etwas Nugat, zart nach Kräutern und Feigen. Straff, rote Fruchtnuancen, integrierte Tannine, mineralisch, fester Körper, bleibt haften, Erdbeeren im Nachhall, frischer Speisenbegleiter mit Zukunftspotenzial."
THE 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."
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."
LISA PERROTTI-BROWN: „Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2022 Gazin bursts with energetic note of wild blueberries, black raspberries, and plum preserves, leading to nuances of violets and star anise. The full-bodied palate has impressive harmony, with velvety tannins and just enough freshness to match the generous fruit, finishing long and fragrant."
