La Gaffeliere

Château La Gaffelière is a Saint-Émilion Premiers Grands Cru Classé (B). The estate is located west of Château Pavie, just south of the town of Saint-Émilion. The estate sits on the ruins of a Gallo-Roman villa named "Le Palat", and later a 17th-century leper colony. The word "gaffet" translates to leper. In the late 1800s the original extensive estate (much like others such as the Léoville estate) was divided into what became Château Canon-la-Gaffelière, and an estate first called Château Gaffelière-Naudes (“Naudes” was dropped in 1963). La Gaffelière has belonged to the Malet-Roquefort family for more than three centuries! The vineyard area extends to 22 hectares, with Merlot accounting for 80% (the remainder Cabernet Franc). Around 10,000 cases of the Grand Vin are produced, and the second wine is named Clos La Gaffelière.

La Gaffeliere 2005 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

The finest La Gaffeliere I have ever tasted, the prodigious 2005 boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a flamboyant bouquet of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, blackberries, smoked meats, incense, and Asian spice. Fabulously deep and full-bodied as well as ethereal and exceptionally elegant for its explosive richness and intensity, its lightness of being reflects the vineyard’s sensational terroir. This succulent beauty appears to be approachable, but that belies some significant tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2030+.

La Gaffeliere 2018 (6x75cl)

Vinous (AG) (99)

The 2018 La Gaffelière is hands down one of the wines of the vintage. Towering in its stature and vertical lift, the 2018 dazzles right out of the gate. Inky dark fruit, mocha, spice, licorice and leather all run through this deep, wonderfully pliant Saint-Émilion. The 2018 is rich, deep and beautifully resonant, with tremendous depth and tons of stature that builds, all framed by beams of supporting minerality that confer vibrancy. La Gaffelière is distinctive, alluring and arresting right out of the gate. It is another magnificent showing from this reborn estate. The blend is 63% Merlot and 37% Cabernet Franc. Magnifique!

La Gaffeliere 2020 (6x75cl)

Vinous (NM) (96-98)

The 2020 La Gaffelière has an intriguing, complex nose, a mélange of red and black fruit, cigar box, undergrowth and mint, quite mercurial in the glass as it opens with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins, a beautiful seam of acidity and perhaps the most satin-like texture I have encountered on a young La Gaffelière. It sashays to a harmonious and precise finish and lingers with wonderful mineralité. This is a magnificent prospect.
