Chateau Gazin Pomerol 2011
93  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 93+"A powerful, virile 2011, Gazin reveals a dense ruby/purple color, a big, meaty, earthy richness, lots of coffee, black cherry liqueur and spice notes, and a full-bodied mouthfeel. It will benefit from another 3-4 years of cellaring and should keep for 15+ years." ~R.P.
