The Freshness and Finesse of a Great Pomerol Wine
Among the most prestigious wines of the renowned Pomerol appellation, located on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region, Chateau Gazin is celebrated for its classic style wines, always of consistently excellent quality.
The 2017 vintage will be remembered for the period of frost that hit hard the vineyards of Bordeaux. However, the terroirs on the Pomerol plateau were largely spared.
Product of what is referred to as a "winemaker’s vintage", the Chateau Gazin 2017 reflects the effort of the property's technical teams, who paid constant attention to the vine throughout the vegetative cycle. The grape harvest began quite early on September 5 with Merlots and ended on October 2 with Cabernets Sauvignon, with the fruit picked in various phases.
With a blend largely dominated by Merlot (95% and complemented by Cabernet Franc (5%), the Chateau Gazin 2017 displays the style and finesse of a great Pomerol wine in a vintage that highlights the purity and freshness of the fruit.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2017 Gazin is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and scented of warm red plums and black forest cake with touches of forest floor and crushed rocks. Medium-bodied, soft, rounded and mouth-filling, it gives good expression and depth.
