Chateau Gazin, Pomerol 2011, France
Tasting Note: A Pomerol that excels in delivering subtlety of flavor.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a nose of eucalyptus, blackberry and red plum with some sour fruit notes as well as oak spice.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied red blend is silky in texture with elegant black fruit.
The wine has midpalate complexity and finishes with chalk-infused notes on its medium-plus finish.
The wine is medium in acidity with medium-plus, well-integrated tannin.
Bottle Note: 75,000 made. Wine is composed of 90% merlot, 5% cabernet sauvignon and 5% cabernet franc.
