1982 Chateau Gazin 嘉仙
Since the 1988 vintage, Gazin has been one of the up and coming stars of Bordeaux. However, the 1982 was obviously made during an uninspiring period when quality was not the chateau's highest priority. It exhibits an herbal, tea-like, spicy, sweet, jammy cherry-scented nose, medium body, some dilution, and a round, easy-going style. It will not hold its fruit for more than another 4-5 years . This is a pleasant but undistinguished wine that should be drunk before the turn of the century. Tasted 4 times with consistent notes.
