CHATEAU LA GAFFELIERE – 1er Grand Cru Classé SAINT EMILION GRAND CRU – La Gaffelière
Grape: 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
Tasting notes: “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.” Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
