Tasting Notes

Pure and energetic on the nose, with raspberry, plum and liquorice notes and a touch of earth. A little closed behind its oak at the moment, but the palate is succulent and delivers a round, smooth mass of dark fruit with hints of crushed stone. Full in weight with high acidity and full but polished tannins, this is a worthy follow-up to the excellent 2009.

Reviews & Scores

Wow! This wine exceeded my enthusiastic barrel tasting notes. A big, back-strapping blockbuster from Gazin, in which the oak seems to be pushed into the background (thankfully), the wine offers up notes of caramelized black cherry and black currant fruit interwoven with mocha, white chocolate, subtle toast and hints of coffee beans and tobacco leaf. The exceptional aromatics are easily followed up by a full-bodied, powerful, broodingly backward, rich, intense wine with multiple dimensions, layers of fruit, and a sensational finish of close to a minute. This is one of the all-time great efforts from Gazin. It should be forgotten for 6-10 years and drunk over the following 30 to 40.
