Tasted at the UGC and in London. Another Gazin at en primeur, another disparaging assessment? Not this year, because finally Gazin have fashioned a commendable and exciting Pomerol that reveals the true potential of their terroir. An understated, slightly savoury nose that perhaps lacks a little lift but exhibits no greenness. The palate is fresh, vibrant with good acidity and definition and none of that green peppery flavour that mars recent vintages for me. Ripe blackberry, a touch of pain grille, a confident, elegant finish. Enfin! Tasted April 2007.
