2004 Gazin, Pomerol

SKU #1197376 91 points Wine & Spirits

 There's a cool freshness at the heart of this wine that intensifies the aromas of stone fruit and strawberries. That's layered with richer scents of cigar tobacco and tropical chocolate as the soft tannins roll across the palate. This is lush and full-bodied, ready for rare roast beef.  (10/2007)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A big time sleeper of the vintage, the 2004 Gazin exhibits aromas of cedar wood, plum pudding, sweet cherries, figs, and black currants. Medium to full-bodied, pure, and elegant with substantial depth as well as terrific aging potential, it should be at its peak between 2009-2022. (RP)  (6/2007)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good red-ruby. Aromas of blackberry, licorice, iron and coffee. Moderately dense and plump in the mouth, with flavors of dark fruits, coffee, smoke, minerals and oak. Finishes with substantial, slightly dusty tannins and very good length. Late notes of chocolate and coffee liqueur. A bit chunky, but has good spine.  (5/2005)

Wine Spectator

 Aromas of crushed berry and dark chocolate follow through to a medium body, with fine tannins and a delicate fresh herb and light berry aftertaste. Balanced and not overdone. Best after 2009.  (3/2007)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
