Decanter   89

A property that is extremely well poised and consistent across the last decade. This has enjoyably tight black fruits from its dash of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon, with extremely fine, austere tannins and a good attack. It dips a touch on the mid-palate, and for this estate it lacks just a little depth. Although it's built to last, it's not quite up to the standard of the last few vintages. Tasted three times.

James Suckling   94-95

A dense and flavorful red already with dark-berry, seaweed and wet-earth undertones. Full body and round and chewy tannins. Green olives on the finish. Serious for the vintage.

Wine Advocate   89-91

The 2017 Gazin is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and scented of warm red plums and black forest cake with touches of forest floor and crushed rocks. Medium-bodied, soft, rounded and mouth-filling, it gives good expression and depth.

Vinous   91-93

The 2017 Gazin has a very classic Pomerol bouquet with black brambly fruit infused with black truffle and subtle raspberry confit notes. Then, as it opens, there are loamy aromas that lend more complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin and a fine bead of acidity. There is a slightly powdery texture, feeling quite saline. White pepper and fennel notes become more conspicuous towards the finish. Just a classic Gazin from proprietor Nicolas de Bailliencourt and his team.
