Excellent with the levels into the neck and good labels.
Whilst not included in the 1855 Bordeaux classification, Pomerol is widely considered to produce some of the world's best wines with names like Chateau Petrus and Chateau Le Pin perched at the very top of the wine world. With prices for the big names in the £thousands, Chateau Gazin represents great value.
It all began in 1905, when Antoine Moueix left his native Corrèze (in the centre of France) to undertake his military service in Libourne. He then discovered the enormous potential of the region and established himself as a wine merchant. His business flourished very rapidly. Having been a farmer like his father, he fully recognized good land and an exceptional terroir. Add to that the savvy nose of a wine merchant and you understand why for his very first acquisition in 1923, he chose Chateau Taillefer in Pomerol.
This is a great example of a 1988 Pomerol from one a great producer and would make a superb birthday or anniversary gift for a wine lover.
