"90-91+ points: Gazin's proprietor thinks 2001 is more successful than 2000, and he might be correct. An impressive, extracted, tannic, powerful effort, this inky purple-colored Pomerol was produced from a vineyard adjacent to Petrus. Deep and muscular, with good delineation, abundant quantities of smoky, black cherry fruit, excellent purity, and admirable definition, it will require patience. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018."

94 points "A sleeper of the vintage, and possibly the finest Gazin I have ever tasted, the 2001 reveals the best integration of oak at this property in many years. An opaque plum/purple color is accompanied by a glorious bouquet of burning embers, roasted meats, espresso, and sweet plum and blackberry fruit. Richer and deeper than it appeared from barrel, with a tremendous finish, this full-bodied, impressive effort represents a breakthrough for Gazin. There are 6,000 cases of this 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc blend. One of the more backward wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020+." Best 2009-2020
