Château-Gazin Pomerol 1999
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pomerol|
Château Gazin wines are a very typical product of the gravelly-clay soil of the Pomerol high terraces. From an early age their lavish richness offers a wide aromatic range of black and red fruits (cherries, morello cherries, red currants, raspberries, blackberries, black currants) which harmonizes with their intense purple or garnet color. They also frequently offer hints of mint, plum, chocolate, coffee or liquorice, and a bouquet of almond, toast, tobacco and vanilla. Maturity gives them a nose of spices, truffles, undergrowth and gamey scents : fur, leather, etc. Their taste is characterized by their silky tannins, their balance and concentration, enhanced by a delicate oaky note. Feminine and delightful due to the dominance of the Merlot, Château Gazin wines, after aging for a few years, make an excellent accompaniment to white and red meats and game, as well as to almond, caramel, vanilla and red fruits desserts, but it is also well to wait fifteen or twenty years or more for them.
Flashy. Dark ruby, with lots of coffee, berry and ripe fruit. Medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a slightly short finish. Hollow midpalate.
