    2014 Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe B

    The 2014 Chateau La Gaffelière reveals a dense, almost ink hue, and a nose marked by alluring flowers, rich fruits (ripe blueberry), spicy notes (black pepper), and precious wood. This Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe B offers a really precise tannic structure with a vibrant attack, a creamy mid-palate (which covers the tannins). The near-tension on the finish indicates the maturity of Cabernet Franc. The 2014 Chateau La Gaffeliere carries a strong ageing potential.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2014 La Gaffeliere appears to have improved since it's showing in barrel (I did hint at this at the time). The nose is perfumed and slightly floral, certainly well defined with neatly integrated oak, dark fruit emerging with aeration in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly edgy, chalky tannin on the entry, shrouded by plenty of dusky black fruit and a potent, graphite-tinged finish. This is one to watch.
