Château Gazin L'Hospitalet de Gazin Pomerol 2010

It wouldn't be a French chateaux website without the slight panic that ensues when the computer unexpectedly commences a classical musical soundtrack and parts of the screen start moving.  Château Gazin in Pomerol is no exception.  They make great wine though.  The L'Hospitalet de Gazin is the second wine of this estate (the first being Château Gazin) and I tasted it out of a 375ml bottle, that perfect size for when further wine is required, but sense suggests a full bottle is not necessary.

The 2010 vintage here, an outstanding vintage of course in Bordeaux, is a full bodied wine with deep and vivid flavours reminding of mulberry, plum, blackberry and blackcurrant.  The tannins, acid and some stem like notes add interest and complexity.  Overall, this is an excellent Pomerol that is easy to recommend.

Rating: Very Good, Abv: 14.5%, Price: ~$80, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: http://www.gazin.com, Tasted: 2014
