Bright, juicy and fresh, the florals, mint, yellow citrus and vanilla stand out. On the palate, the wine refreshes with lemon zest, tangerine, vanilla and a drop of honey.

2017 Château Gazin Rocquencourt  (Pessac-Léognan) 90
Fresh and forward, a few years is all this medium-bodied prom queen is going to need before delivering all the soft, ready elegance expected from an intermingling of red fruits, smoke and a whiff of licorice.

A topping of vanilla ice cream over freshly halved grapefruit, green apples with grating of lemon rind. There is ample freshness, vibrancy and lift, giving the wine a racy finish.

From 100% Sauvignon Blanc, the mix of just picked grapefruit, lemon and apple is right there. Good freshness, with a nice kick at the end, this will be delicious on release.

2016 Château Gazin Rocquencourt  (Pessac-Léognan) 92
The fruit here is so ripe, lush, juicy, fresh and rich, it is hard not to ask for another glass. Full-bodied and loaded with sweet, earthy, dark plums, tobacco leaf, cocoa and smoke, the wine is round, lush and will be perfect for youthful, or near term drinking, while waiting for its brig brother to mature.The wine was produced from blending 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot.

2015 Château Gazin Rocquencourt  (Pessac-Léognan) 91
With a strong, flinty, minereality, the fruit is ripe, sweet, forward, soft and polished. Medium/full bodied, the palate enjoys dark chocolate coated plums and soft, elegant textures. A few years in the cellar will add a lot more complexity and softness to the wine.

Crisp, bright, juicy, sweet and fresh, showing grapefruit, lemon and a bit of honey, with a boatload of acidity, to kick it up in the finish.

One of the best values for white Bordeaux wine delivers a blast of ripe citrus fruit, grapefruit peel, honeysuckle and ample freshness that was perfect on a hot summer day with grilled fish.

Medium bodied, elegantly styled, young, fresh, smoky, black raspberries, dark cherries and espresso bean scents are easy to find in the nose. Soft and forward for the vintage, you can drink this now, or age it a few years to develop more earthy complexities.

This is probably fully developed, so drinking it now, is the right thing to do. The wine is soft, open and silky, with ripe red fruits, licorice, and a hint of chocolate. It is a solid wine of pleasure, but not a wine to wait for further development.

In its prime time drinking window, the wine is soft, round and smoky, with a black cherry, espresso and earthy profile. This is not meant for long term aging, so if you have a bottle, pop a cork.
