A profound 1st Classified Growth of Saint-Emilion

In 2016, 38 hectares of the 1st Classified Growth of Saint-Emilion, Château La Gaffelière, were harvested between the 29th of September and 21st of October during an exceptional Indian summer. The 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc - which make up this year’s blend - have undergone vinification even more adapted and precise, thanks to the new La Gaffelière vat, which makes it possible to manage the lots with more selections, all in a real "tailor-made" style.

Château La Gaffelière 2016 boasts a very dark color, inky with blue highlights. This wine displays remarkable class and a disconcerting aromatic and gustatory depth. Pure and tense from the olfactory attack, the nose expresses aromatic brilliance with freshly picked black fruits. Stirring reveals a very aromatic freshness. The entry is dynamic, the mid-palate express a very refined tannic structure, which is delicate, so fine in fact that we forget the presence of tannins. The wine is dense, very dense but without giving up its elegance. This is an aesthetic wine: truly 3-dimensional.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 La Gaffeliere opens with compelling wild blueberries, freshly crushed plums and kirsch scents plus hints of garrigue, underbrush, rose hip tea and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is wonderfully elegant with a soft, velvety texture and seamless freshness carrying the multilayered fruit to a long finish.
