Luscious, silky and fresh, the wine has the structure to age, which is a good thing, because all the layers of ripe, juicy, pure, opulent, fresh, red and black fruits, licorice, earth and cocoa are only going to get better and better with cellaring. Give this a decade in the bottle and the wine will deliver the goods.

Gazin is on fire these days, and the 2016 is only adding to the flame. The beautiful sense of purity in the silky, luscious, sensuous red fruits stands out fro start to finish here. Full bodied and concentrated, the tannins are soft, ripe and refined, which is perfect to match with the lift and length.. A decade will really make this pop.

Concentrated and near bottomless in length and depth, this wine is ripe with dense color and a stratum of sweet, juicy plums, truffle, floral and cocoa notes. This should develop quite well, adding additional nuances and softer texture as it ages. The wine was made from a blend of 95.2% Merlot and 4.8% Cabernet Franc. 94 - 96 Pts

Fully mature, or at least quite close to it, the plummy fruit combines sweetness with earth and herbs, the tannins are soft and the wine leaves you with just a hint of rusticity in the finish. This is not a wine to keep for cellaring. If you have a bottle, drink up.

Earthy, truffle notes really stand out, even at this early stage adding complexity to the black cherry and stone notes that are out in front. On the palate, the wine combines energy with soft, supple tannins and sweet, spicy, plums and black raspberries. Another 3-6 years will bring this together nicely..

Holding back some of its personality, this is still a reserved style for Gazin. With effort, you can find freshness, refined tannins and dark, red fruits, with a hint of olive in the finish. Another year or two in the cellar should be just about right.

With a good depth of color, the wine needs an hour or so of decanting before it releases all its sensuous, juicy, plums, truffle, earth and spice box characteristics. Full bodied, rich and concentrated, there is energy and complexity here. Even though this can be enjoyed now, another 4-5 years will add so much more to its complexity and character.

Still young, but clearly on the path. With some effort, this concentrated, full-bodied wine offers up its truffle, plum, thyme, floral and wet earth essence. Concentrated, rich, lush and loaded with all the right stuff, another 5 years or so should add more softness and nuance.

Full bodied, structured, powerful, tannic, concentrated, deep, .classic Pomerol that is just starting to come out of its shell. There is a wealth of fruit that is needed, because you also find loads of tannins. Give this at least a few more years in the cellar allowing you to really enjoy the layers of plum and truffle found here.

Cedar, incense, and red fruits start off the experience. Soft, and already drinking at close to the peak, the early drinking charm here exchanges depth and concentration for ease and pleasure. This is the right time to be popping corks on this wine, it is not made from further aging.

Firm, structured, semi masculine, old school style of Pomerol that is slightly more interesting on the nose, with its earthy, plum, cocoa, tobacco and black cherry perfume, than on the palate. Perhaps more time will help soften the wine, but at close to 16 years of age, this is probably what it is.

The color is ruby with bricking. On the nose, smoke, spice, cassis, earth, pepper, olives and fresh herbs. The masculine cherry finish has a hint of bitter in the end note. This is an old school, traditional, beefy, structured style of Pomerol. It will probably age and develop additional levels of complexity for at least another 10-20 years. But it's not going to completely soften.

Chocolate, truffle, boysenberry, blackberry, caramel and roasted plum scents open to a melange of chocolate covered blackberries and elegant textures. The only minor drawback in the wine is at the end of the finish with some green/stemmy flavors. This is a nice fully mature Pomerol that will offer pleasure for at least another 12-20 years.

Fully mature, or just on the other side of maturity, looking into the downward slope of life, there is a lot of meaty, earthy dark cherries and plums on the nose and palate. In fact, the nose was the better part of the wine. But the old school, rustic textures mar the otherwise, quite nice wine. Fans of sterner tannins, herbs and greenery are going to like this more than I did.

Off aromas of lawn grass, herbs, wet earth and tobacco, gruff textures and an earthy, black cherry finish were found in this bottle. I've tasted better examples. This was probably an off bottle, but as with all mature wines, there are no great old wines, just great bottles.

Brickish in color, with an earth, truffle, plum, steel, mineral and blackberry scented perfume, this concentrated, old school wine was austere in nature.

Truffle, soy, black cherry, pepper, leather, tar, black raspberry and tobacco notes make up the perfume. The soft textured wine is filled with dense, ripe, dark cherry flavors. In 61, Gazin switched to a unique wax capsule that is interesting and attractive.

The wine, slightly stern in style was more interesting on the nose than the palate. Gazin remains an austere style of Pomerol. This bottle of 61 has moved past its prime. It improved in the glass for a short period of time before slowing dropping its fruit. I've had much better bottles.
