Classic vintages to enjoy now and all beautifully presented in our luxury Dunell's hamper box with red ribbon.
We are excited to offer these four magnificent vintages of L'Hospitalet de Gazin in one case.
This noble wine is made from the young vines of the legendary Château Gazin, an immediate neighbour of Petrus. Indeed, Petrus bought a beautiful block of Gazin in 1969, which perhaps tells you more about Gazin’s quality than anything else. This is one of the great values in Pomerol, with a brilliant quartet of back-to-back vintages from 2014 to 2017. Yet another success story from Ets. Jean-Pierre Moueix.
An impressive snapshot of one of the great terroirs of Pomerol, ready to enjoy now.
This case of 4 bottles contains:
1 x L’Hospitalet de Gazin 2014
This has a dense, virtually opaque colour and an immensely stylish earthy, red fruited perfume touched by oak. The palate shows lovely weight with dense generous flavours, excellent concentration and an intense, pure and fresh finish.
1 x L’Hospitalet de Gazin 2015
Full ruby colour, the nose offers cool, elegant subtly powerful red fruit, rounded and spicy with the lightest touch of creamy oak. The palate is juicily weighted with beautifully extracted flavours, dense but generous and a fine length.
1 x L’Hospitalet de Gazin 2016
Qualitatively this is a significant step up, less overt, more profound than the previous Pomerols tasted. Dark, subliminally powerful perfume of densely packed red and black fruits, spicy, earthy, clenched. The palate is calm, measured, drily rich, profound. The fruit is beautifully extracted with big, broad-shouldered flavours, chewy and rich but with a burst of compressed freshness on the finish that lifts the weight so well.
1 x L’Hospitalet de Gazin 2017
Opaque ruby in colour, this has a dark full, pungently ripe red fruit nose and a full, dense, chewy palate which avoids over extraction effortlessly, to offer a delicious concentration, freshness of attack and purity to the finish. Stylish wine, fine length as well.
