The 2012 Rauzan Gassies is somewhat tannic, austere and rustic, but dense ruby/purple, yet possesses some serious concentration and body. The angularity and astringency of the tannins are a distraction, raising doubts about whether this wine will ever fully come together. However, it has plenty of up-side potential and will keep and evolve over a 15- to 20-year period.

A dark plum/ruby color is followed by scents of plums, figs, earth, and dried herbs in this attractive, mid-weight 2004. Good depth, medium body, and a spicy, earthy character suggest it should be consumed over the next decade

Abundant aromas of forest floor, underbrush, earth, black cherry, black currant and a distinctive spicy character emerge from this attractive 2008. Although not one of the most concentrated wines of the vintage, it is well-balanced and distinctive. It will provide pleasure over the next 10-15 years

The 2010 is a very strong effort from this estate, which is situated next to the other, better-known Rauzan, Rauzan Segla. Dense purple, its sweet notes of underbrush, forest floor, licorice, black currants and a hint of lead pencil shavings are followed by a lush, ripe, surprisingly fleshy and succulent wine that is much more evolved and forward at this stage than when tasted from barrel. I thought this wine would need more cellar time, but it is actually approachable in spite of its size, richness and density. Give it several years of cellaring and drink it over the following 20+ years
