"The 2014 Gazin was stubborn and broody when tasted in bottle, but give it a few swirls and there comes forth gravel and black truffle scents alongside sultry black fruit. These aromatics are so engaging and involving, drawing you in towards it charms. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and taut with great precision and sappiness towards the focused, almost symmetrical, black truffle-laced finish. This continues Gazin's fine run of form, a great Pomerol from an estate predisposed these days to create sophisticated, classic wines." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (03/31/2017, Interim Issue), Rating: 94
"The 2014 Gazin is laced with pretty red cherry, plum, raspberry and rose petal notes. Soft contours and silky tannins add considerable appeal. I would prefer to drink this juicy, midweight Pomerol over the next handful of years, while the fruit retains its youthful exuberance. In 2014, Gazin is all finesse."

"Mid cherry red. Lightly spicy red and black fruit and just a little dusty on the nose. Chalky, chewy texture, fresh and dry on the finish. Could do with a little more flesh but it is balanced even with the slightly higher alcohol." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, Rating: 16/20
