    The refinement and aromatic expression of a Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe

    The estate

    Located to the south of the village of Saint-Émilion, Chateau La Gaffeliere, Premier Grand Cru Classe de Saint-Emilion, boasts ancient origins. The discovery of mosaics during excavations confirmed the presence of vines on the estate as early as the Gallo-Roman era. Owned by the Malet Roquefort family for more than three centuries and located in the "golden triangle" between the hills of Chateaux Pavie and Ausone, Chateau La Gaffeliere embodies the excellence of fine red Saint-Emilion wines.

    The vineyard

    A must-know reference among Saint-Emilion wines, Chateau La Gaffeliere watches over a 22-hectare vineyard that is classified as a Premier Grand Cru Classe. This vineyard is located in 3 different areas. The famous asteriated limestone plateau, the clayey soils known as molasse de Fronsadais and the more siliceous soils at the bottom of the hill. Bearing a High Environmental Value certificate, the vineyard of Chateau La Gaffeliere is managed using integrated viticultural practices and favors the most gentle intervention methods.

    The vintage

    The vineyard was under great stress throughout 2021 due to a cool start to the year, punctuated by periods of frost. The very unstable summer conditions reinforced mildew pressure. While September combined fairly cool temperatures with optimal sunshine, the mild weather in October was ideal for refining the ripening process, particularly for the Cabernet Franc varietal. The harvest was carried out in a plot-by-plot manner in order to harvest perfectly ripe and healthy grapes.

    Vinification and aging

    The grapes are harvested by hand in small crates and placed in a cold room for 12 hours. A rigorous optical sorting enables the team to keep only the best quality grapes, which are then vinified by parcel in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats filled by gravity flow. Alcoholic fermentation with pumping over and punching down. Malolactic fermentation in vats (75%) and barrels (25%). Vatting for 25 to 30 days. Aged for 14 to 16 months in French oak barrels (60% new oak).

    The blend

    Merlot (58%)

    Cabernet Franc (42%).
