    Critical Acclaim:

    Complex aromas of green coffee bean, tarragon and blackberry, turning to licorice and violet. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and beautiful fruit. Very balanced and refined for the vintage. Exceptional for this estate. A real beauty. Best after 2014.

    This is a very strong effort from this estate, which sits just adjacent to Petrus. In fact, they sold part of their vineyard to Petrus in the early 1970s. This is a full-bodied, powerful 2006 with the oak more restrained than it normally is in a young Gazin. Copious quantities of sweet plum, fig, and black cherry fruit are intermixed with cedar and dried herbs in a medium to full-bodied, rich, long, impressively endowed style. This is an outstanding wine, with enough stuffing, structure, and density to age beautifully over a 20- to 25-year period.

    It’s impressive how the new wood, which tasted overpowering in barrel, has now integrated. Yes, it is firm and toasty, but the sweet Merlot shows well, as do the tense fruit tannins. A wine to age.
